a veteran's call for help
Lou Dolinar of Newsday (and an official Friend of Bloggers) forwarded the following email to me, hoping that someone reading this can help a veteran out:
Lou, I am a 72 year old veteran who was stationed in Trieste from 1952-54. Am also the secretary of the NE Chapter of the 88th Div. We were known as TRUST TROOPERS, TRUST being a synonym for TRieste United States Troops. We were the replacements for last remnant of the 88th. Div.-from WW Two who had fought from Sicily to Trieste.
Lt. Col. Tom Cohoon Retired, started an impressive Web Page Oldsoldiershome.com some time ago to attract those Veterans who had been TRUST TROOPERS. I believe he is self taught as he tells me he had to learn HTML himself.
At this time he is reaching out for members to either help him with his Pages or to take it over completely. Where would I get started to learn the basics of Web Page management in order to keep this site alive a bit longer? Courses in a local schools, Reading, Library or whatever?
I have an eMac G4- OSX 10.2.8 - 256 MG - 1 GHz with DSL hookup. Although I have been Mac owner for 10 years I am a rank amateur to Web Page Management. I mostly use my computer for word processing and e-mail to my friends.
War is not the worst thing; The worst thing would be to forget those Veterans of the 88th who made the ultimate sacrifice. I would like to keep the memories of Trieste and our unit alive a bit longer. Any advice or direction you can give will be appreciated.
If anyone can help Gene out, or if you know of someone who would be willing to help Gene keep that site alive, please leave a comment saying so and I'll contact you. Thanks.
