    Hi, just found this board and have really enjoyed everything I've read so far. Just a bit about myself. I'm 35 and have been infatuated with World War II history since I was quite young. My dad was born in 1930 so he passed down a lot of interest to me as I had three uncles in WWII, all of whom survived the war.

    Thank you all for adding to this board and I hope to learn alot and make some contributions in the future.

    Matt

    Charles,

    I'm from western Illinois, been around here most of my life. Except for a year and a half stint in Regina Saskatchewan (eh!) right after I graduated college.

    So far I've really enjoyed this board, I have not killed a thread yet, which seems to happen all the time on the boards of my other interests!

    Matt

    Welcome Matt and Bombardier! If you keep respect for others on the forum and don't post spam, there's no reason why you should kill a thread here.
