After the War Band of Brothers

The War starts after this episode
Scroll on down to get to the war.

After the war the veterans of the 39th FA battalion were not finished with volunteering. Sometime after the war they signed up for membership in the Society of the 3rd Infantry Division. Bill and others became life members and attended meetings until they died. They were not through with excitement because the Society held meetings in Reno Nevada or Las Vegas some of the time. Here are some pictures

Bill died April 7, 2001 As of this date Jan 28, 2008 all of Bill's friends are dead except Bill Kunz who is still alive.

The song Dog Faced Soldier was written by a 3rd Div. infantryman while in Africa. Because he was in Africa he could not copywrite it so others have plagiarized it for their own purposes.

This concludes the great experience of the WW2 for the participants in the 39th Field Artillery Battalion.
