I am amazed at your work for this History project. I am currently working of the story of a Canadian Field Artillery Regiment and like to connect with you to share information. I have read the 'Music Back to Normandy' page filled with passion!! I have questions related to our project for the 12th Field. What is the best way to reach you - Are these message private or public ? Is your location in Holland ? Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45

Thanks, Fred. Really appreciate your interest and efforts. My mother was romantically involved with one of the crew, XX. She died recently, but I was able to tell her that I had been able to obtain the details of how he had died. How much of it she knew already I do not know, but I wanted to know, for sure, and she was very grateful for what I had discovered. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45

I give thanks to God, as a living survivor of Omaha Beach, Medical Detachment, 16th. Infantry, 1st Infantry Division, I am humbled by the tremendous sacrifices and service by all who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day.

After publishing my film 'Goodbye Normandy Veterans' God bless all the veterans. Thank you, Lovely, very moving!, This certainly brought a tear to my eye, To see these veterans march, put pictures to the word "I was proud to be" These men have never lost their pride over being soldiers fighting for freedom., Met genoegen en een klein traantje gekeken.Bedankt voor de tip Fred........more on FB Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
"Night and Fog is a film I have seen more than once over the decades. I think it is the most powerful visual document of WWII. Your music is intensely powerful, sorrowful and beautiful all at the same time. It seamlessly balances and complements the visual images, without it many of them would be unbearable to watch."

Fred, the story on your web site looks fantastic! Thank you for investing time into what you have done by adding the stories and putting in the Airmen's photos into your web site. I know when fellow readers of WW II history & events come upon the story they are going to find it very interesting. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45

"Hi Fred, Thank you very much! I have been in contact with many of the family members from the crash and have given them your website address so they can read the story of what happened to their family member. I am sure they are all very appreciative of your site and hard work at maintaining it. Thanks again," Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
"Back to Normandy played in Michigan USA. The director of the orchestra: Concert tonight went exceptionally well. I think that Back to Normandy was the best we've played it. Many comments afterward about what a moving piece that was, and how much the video added. Following the playing of that piece we invited all veterans in the audience to stand and be recognized. A great moment. Thanks again for your wonderful music and your dedication to the memory of all who served." Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
I was very much surprised to see the photo and contents of your page identifying the Halifax XXXX bomber on it's last flight over Germany. It was a very personal moment as my Father F/O XX was the navigator on this flight. When shot down, he and all the crew parachuted to safety. The pilot Cooper was killed in the incident. We are not sure if he went down with the plane, or died on the ground after parachuting. The crew were captured and sent to Stalug Luft I until the end of the war. The Flight Engineer died in the camp. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Thank you so very much Fred. You are a most talented individual and I certainly hope we can work together again soon. We really appreciate all your beautiful talents." Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45

"Thank you so much for enabling a valuable family find on your website, Fred. The Lancaster plane featured carries a family member (my sister's father) on board. Sad to say, all perished in Germany on this mission & are buried in Hamburg cemetery." Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
I can't find the words to say how I appreciate your message. I'l make all I can to get the more about my uncle. When he found, for the first time after the war, someone who wanted to listen to him, he was so happy. He told me so very few. When I told him I would be honored to write his story, his face came like a sun, with a wonderful smile. He began to note some events and he passed away 2 weeks later. That happened in 2002. Am I responsable about his departure ? I still ask myself today. But be sure I'l send you a copy of my notes. You'l have to be patient. I thank you very much for your help. Have a nice day, Regards, Bob Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Fred, Thanks for posting the information about the George's mission to Nevers. Most of all thank you for all the effort you do to remind us of the sacrifices made during the war by countless young men and women. Thank you on behalf of the families" Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
The music is sounding excellent. . I am knee deep into this project editing and hearing this is absolutely inspiring. I think it might be helpful for me to use a few excepts in different parts of the film as I edit just to get a feel for different moods in different places' I think the new version will lend itself much better to our film and style of storytelling'.
