THANK YOU for posting this thread. As a retired veteran I have the UTMOST respect for members of the GREATEST GENERATION. You have the makings of a best selling story if you can find someone to help you develop it. Even if you don't want to profit from the story, just think of the good you could do for legitimate veterans groups. God Bless you and your family! You can contact me if this is something you are interested in pursing. [ron.may@outlook.com]

Fantastic that your fathers words are proven by the scrap book and hammers home your belief as him as a hero!

totally epic !

I would keep the book yourself and then get it made into a book !

if you gift it to the smithsonian it'd be cool , but its your personal property!


As for the old newspapers , when I moved to my new house in the southside glasgow the houses were built in 1923 , and the lining under the carpets were papers from 1940 - 1943 from the Glasgow Herald , loads of stories about the nazis and shot down planes , sunken ships , raids !

Pretty cool to see that snap shot back in time !

Good luck with your dads awesome collection ! I hope it brings more joy and pleasure to you

Scan each page and upload to Ats that would be a monumental thread

My first thought would be. Do you want to keep the tomes private? Or do you want the public to see what a legend your dad was? If you choose public, contact a museum like Smithsonian, or the Army. They would be happy to accept historical information as a gift.

Unfortunately, the pages are too large to scan. They're all about ~11x14. Plus there's envelopes pasted on the pages with multi-page letters and documents in them. This isn't like your average 'photo' album, it's like a gold mine of all sorts of stuff.

It's about 4" thick. It would take months to even photograph it all properly.
