Willie Hein Album

Willie Hein and his family attended the Tyler reunion in October 2010 and brought with them a photo album of the 300th and World War II. The story of how he got the film from the United States to Europe and how the photos were developed is not entirely clear. The end result is about 200 photos of excellent quality never before published. What makes these photos of even more important is that the photos were taken by the men of the 300th and Willie has identified the photos; people, location, activity, etc. Our tanks to Willey for sharing these for the web site.
