    Seb,

    Can you give me an idea of where in Normandie the Stephens bracelet was found? His name and Service Number are not on NARA. But, maybe we can use unit manning rosters to find him. I found one SSGT Kelly Stephens - a WWII vet - who lived in Arkansas but has also now passed away. But, I can't confirm it was him since there is no seriel number listed for him.

    Mark,thank you so much for you help and the interest you show to my "quest".

    here's a screen capture of the area of the Lucky strike camp.
    Look at this Hawaiian sea blue(barely seen such a color there...May be the Paluel's atomic plant effects....)
