I've spent almost 30 years collecting, digitizing this material about US Army railway units in WWII and Korea and making it freely available to the vets themselves, their families and researchers.
Much of the material has been donated but lots of it I have purchased over the years, I have also purchased expensive equipment for scanning and digitizing.
Right now, I have 2 huge scanning projects going on ( they could be just the unit you are looking for information about) and have bought a new digital document camera for the larger books. You can help me continue the work of this blog by making a donation.
Please help .. if you have enjoyed materials you found here and want others to continue to learn about these units ! If you'd like to send a check email me : Nancy- email@example.com
Do you have items that you are going to sell on eBay? Send me a scan of it before you sell it - I will hold the scan until after your item sells and then I will post it on the blog for the families of the soldiers to enjoy. These items are so important to them - some items feature photos of their long deceased Dad's or grandfathers and they are priceless to them. These items also tell the story of the amazing military service of the " greatest generation " make sure their families can freely see them.
Also if you have materials you'd like to donate please contact me !

If you are a collector or memorabilia dealer PLEASE share copies or scans of items BEFORE you sell these priceless materials to private collectors . It means so much to the families of the actual guy's that served .
