Ordinary Heroes mentioned on Italian Web site

The nice folks at Project "The Gothic Line, a Line of Memories" just added a link to Ordinary Heroes: Six Stars in the Window. The main site is in Italian, but you'll find an English translation part-way down the page. The link to Ordinary Heroes is in the left column, near the English translation.

Thank you to Massimo Torchi! ;-)

Farewell to a friend

Marilyn Kahl, long-term supporter of the 10th Mountain Infantry Division veteran's and descendant's organizations, recently passed away. She was a tireless organizer--one of those people who filled each day to the brim. She will be missed by all who knew her, including the 10th Mountain Infantry Division veterans and descendants from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
