Hello, My father, James Di Salvo, served with the 61st Combat Engineer Batallion in Belgium. He spent time in Dolhane Belgium with a local family and several other soldiers who were housed there just previous to the Battle of the Bulge. Would be interested to hear from any veterans who may have served with my father. We have many letters and some photographs.
