Subject: Camp Forrest
 

Steve,

This is my first involvement and email regarding Camp Forrest.  My brother and I are seeking information about our Mother and I want to find ‘Camp connections’ if they are out there.

Her name was Johnnie Lorene Campbell and she worked at the commissary (I think 1942-43 timeframe).  She met and married John Lonick from Pennsylvania, a paratrooper I believe, in 1943.  He lived only months after they married.  In 1947, my Mother married my father whom she had known since childhood. They were married 38 years and he died in 1985.  She was a private person who was hesitant to talk about her first marriage.  She died in 2005 at the age of 90.

I have her Camp Forrest memory book (no pictures) which is full of written messages from people she met there.  I also have a picture of John Lonick.

How do you suggest I go forward?

Regards,
