WWII mystery solved

From: Laurie Haldeman-Lambe
DearMYRTLE,
Thought this article would interest you in how the U.S. Army is using genealogy to give relatives closure and to document what happened to their loved ones who didn't survive. I think it's a great service & one that deserves to be publicized. And you are the best person I know to do just that. Thanks for your column!!

DearLAURIE,

THANKS for sending me the link to WWII mystery solved by staff writer Deena Yellin on 14 Feb 2009, published online at NorthJersey.com. “Nearly 65 years after Pfc. Arthur Gallo Jr. was killed in the Battle of the Bulge, his niece, Camille Caminiti, now knows where his remains are buried. Gallo, a Brooklyn native, was 26 when he enlisted, and his parents did not talk about his death three years later in 1944. For years, Caminiti wished she knew what happened to her favorite uncle.”

When my DearREADERS find such newspaper articles on the Internet, I appreciate the heads up. Folks can do as you have done, by clicking the “email” option when available, then typing in Ol’ Myrt’s email address Myrt@DearMYRTLE.com. I do have all sorts of Google Alerts, but sometimes in my haste, and especially when traveling, I miss important articles such as the one you’ve shown me. Thanks for moving the conversation forward.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
