Hello Steve,
I am creating a simple Google website using all of the materials one of my Uncles collected during his army/wartime experiences during the 1940's.
At one point, he was stationed at Camp Forrest for training.

Here is the page I have created showing my Uncle Ralph, and some of his buddies, at Camp Forrest in the fall of 1942.
Would you mind if I linked your website to this page ?
Thank you for your efforts!

Heck no Chris... would not mind at all, and if you don't mind I'd like to do the same.

Might I also create a page and copy some of your things to and use it as a jumping off page to your web site? I'd also place it in appropriate areas throughout my site.

Thank you!

Yes, please go ahead and copy anything you would like from what I have.
The pictures of my Uncle Ralph and his buddies from Camp Forrest are from approx. September 18, 1942, thru December 19, 1942.

At the time, my Uncle was a Pvt with the 8th Infantry Division, 28th Regiment, Company "L".

He would then go on to a number of other camps in the US before being shipped to Ireland. From there, he went to Normandy on July 1, 1944. He arrived back in the states October 15, 1945.
After the war, he created a rather detailed scrapbook of photos, postcards, newspapers, foreign money and military items (his field manual, dog tags, etc.). It appears that at least once he tore it apart to make new scrapbooks with. With the passing of my Grandfather (my Uncle Ralphs brother) a few years back, I received this scrapbook, along with the scrapbooks for my grandfathers and another Uncles experiences during WWII.
In an attempt to preserve all of this stuff, and to have my entire extended family be able to see this, I decided to start scanning most of it and putting it in a website.
Google websites are easy and free..........
I haven't created a main page for this site yet, but will get to it at some point soon.
In checking though the scrapbook, what you see on the page I sent is all that I have from his months at Camp Forrest, with the exception of a few photos of some of his buddies that are a bit faded.
