Members of the 506 Infantry Last Roll Call
We have only died in vain if you believe so; You must decide the wisdom of our choice By the world that you shall build upon our headstones And the everlasting truths which have your voice.
Currahee Scrapbook, 1945

Sharlee received TWO email's from Normandy France, starting 10 May 2008, from a wonderful man and organization that are taking care of our soldiers who died for their Freedom.

I e-mail Jeannie, Nita, Will and Elsie with my first two emails and then answered Franck. Then received this email 8 June 2008. Dear Sharlee and Jeannie,
I saw in the news that there were a serial of hurricanes in Oklahoma. It's really terrific.
Thank you very much for your messages and all you researches. You are wonderfull with me. It was a dream for me to meet members of the Charles Risner's familly. Thank to you this dream is coming true.
I started to put flowers on charles'grave five years ago. he died for us, for our freedom and it's very important to not forget his sacrifice.
I join for you and the familly of Charles Risner a picture of his grave.
Charles T Risner'grave is in the american war cementery of Omaha Beach at Colleville sur Mer.
There are 9,387 soldiers grave in this cementery.
I can search the graves of Oklahoma citizens if you want.

In this link you will see the site of the regiment of Charles Risner and another pictures of his grave with my three children (picture taken in 2004):

After the war he was definitely buried at Colleville sur Mer. Viewes of this cementery were in the famous film saving Private Ryan.
