    What is the cost for this seminar? I am an art historian and cultural preservationist, and have been doing my own indepedent research on the Pacific theatre of the MFAA, as my father was in US Army Air Corps, born raised in China, was in CHina for Marshall Mission, and as military attache in Beijing- then was tasked with evacuating civilians from China, and he (and my mother who was with him) was sent to Tokyo, where he worked in intelligence under MacArthur, and had some assignments with the MFAA, so I am going to pursue my research, now made much easier, with the Smithsonians work and I am interested in attending seminar.

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

    I have found a map that belonged to my father, Luther H. Jackson who served in the Army during WWII. It is a map that depicts the 84th Infantry Division from its activation on 15 Oct 1942 to E Day 9 May 1945. They were known as the Railsplitter Division, with A.R. Bolling – Major General, US Army Commanding. The map was drafted by T/A George D. Harney, 84th Inf Div. Reproduced by 663 Engineer TOPO Co. In the right lower corner it even gives a list of the number of Prisoners of War captured, i.e. Rhineland – 7306 PWs; Ardennes – 1461 PWs; Central Europe – 61,342 PWs. Oh, yes, in the top right hand corner of the map, Berlin is depicted as a broken Swastika. I am interested in the historical and of course, the monitorial value of the map. If you can help, please let me know.
