Our research honoring World War II veterans extends across the pond. An English gentleman from Bude, a seaside town in northeast Cornwall, asked us for help. Next year marks the 80th anniversary of soldiers embarking on his town to train for D-Day. Citizens plan to build monuments to recognize the troops who fought to provide freedom to those in Bude and across England. We connected him with research assistants at the Eisenhower Library in Kansas, which houses information on some of the units stationed in Bude in the 1940s.
