  • This one's for Slick 24 only...

    As promised .

    I make a long story short.
    The most glamour item found by my pals,metal detectorists , in the vicinity of Royan ,was this lovely and extremely moving chain bracelet.
    It took me 1 year for finding the right person ,who could help me,the military attaché at the US embassy in Paris.
    He send back the item to the States and the US Army worked hard to track the descendants of Mr Marciniak.
    One day , i finally recieved this mail :

    ""Monsieur Sebastien,



    We received your voicemail message last year; however, we did not clearly understand your email address and did not know how to contact you. We tried to email modelchip, modelship, medalchip and medalship- none of us guessed that it was actually modelkit.



    My mother did receive the bracelet a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it is not my father’s bracelet. The number on it does not match the number we have on a similar bracelet and on other army documentation in our possession. In addition, the bracelet was engraved with “love mom and dad.” My father’s mother died when he was 9 years old, so any of his personal items would not have referred to his mother.

    My father often proudly spoke about fighting in France and in the Battle of the Bulge. Even though he was a secretary in the Generals’ tent, a bomb exploded near him. He had a concussion and awoke in an England hospital upon the end of the war. Even though the bracelet is not my father’s (he died in 1994), I know that he would have been very excited to hear about it.

    I looked up the bracelet number on the internet and it appears as if the true owner was from New York when he enrolled in the army. Would you like me to forward the bracelet to the army division responsible for reuniting veterans with their lost belongings?

    As we celebrate Memorial Day on Monday, I want to thank you for your efforts in reuniting war artifacts with their owners. I know that my father would have been very happy to hear of your work.

    How sad...
    The army failed to spot the right family...
    I was absolutely depressed,really.The nice mail from this man helped me to forget this epic fail, but it was really sad ...
    No news from the other dogtags , medals , belongings sent back.

    I had this very kind certificate wich proves that at the end ,you are rewarded for your efforts.A sheet of paper ,but a great one for me.

    Et voilà !!

        Inspiring, moving, and a joy all at once.

        My freind Jean-Claude used to get a tear in his eye when he told me about his vivid memories of the americans arriving to liberate his village.

                      What are you saying, that St Malo is to Brittany what Hoboken is to New Jersey?
