Mr Bando and Forum,
I am the son of Sgt. John H. Barickman, mortar platoon, HQ Co, 2nd Battalion, 506 PIR. I was delighted to see his name mentioned in reference to the confusion over John D. Halls, w ho was Dad's best friend. (You must have interviewed Dad at some point.) Regrettably, BoB got the name wrong in the Brecourt segment. One of 16 kids in a Mormon family, Halls was well-known in our family. Dad is now 96 y/o, but has vivid menories of his service. He has several photos that the members might enjoy--Toccoa, Benning, Aldbourne, and Carentan. Once I learn how to attach them I will do so.
Thanks for being a tireless historian.
Paul H. Barickman
Would be very interested in seeing any pictures Paul, if you can post them.
Best Wishes from England,
