Truly a Herculean effort. Thank you so much, its amazing. Also a word of thanks to George’s daughter Carolyn they dedicated untold hours, researching, assembling and sizing information & photographs.
George’s experience and expertise in assisting families searching for information on their loved ones is evident. Thanks also to Del Badiuk and Norm Campbell, for their areas of special expertise and Norm’s action in getting our Dunwoodie Crew project on line so quickly.
Our gratitude to all of you for making this project possible, your combined efforts have presented us with a very special and meaningful Memorial for this crew
