Super job you did on the bio record of my father. Thanks for all of this. I feel the work you do here is so very important,as it is a part of history,and we hope we never have to revisit it, but at the same time we must pay homage to those who fought and died, and those who survived such perils. Let us never forget.........thanks again Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45

Sincere gratitude I was born in 1942 and I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all those brave Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen/womenwho through their courageous efforts allowed me to bring up two wonderful children, who in turn gavemy Wife and I beautiful grandchildren, and that they all have been able to live in peace and freedom. We are forever in your debt. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45

Rene Lenting via LinkdIN: I know Fred as a very loyal , skilled and open minded artist, I ve spend hours listening to his music, you need a big band jive or a classical movie track without paying for all the musicians, transport, lunches and all that ? Fred Vogels is the man.. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45

Please accept my sincere thanks for helping me get the existance of this unit xxxx on the map its just a shame that most of those involved will probably never see what you have done. If I can even be of assistance to you in getting other Units recognised, then please feel free to call upon me. I am in your debt Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Over Night and Fog: Respect Fred. Schitterend werk. Ik ben geboren in de Plantage in Amsterdam, naast het bejaardenhuis de Joodsche Invalide, met om de hoek de Hollandsche Schouwburg en het door Gerrit Jan van der Veen en zijn groep in de fik gestoken bevolkingsregister. Ik liep naar school over de lau mazirel brug, voetbalde op het JD Meijer plein, bij de Dokwerker, tussen de Duitse en de Portugese sjoel. Ik verkocht oude kranten aan de voddenboer op het oude Waterlooplein, waar nu de Stopera staat. Later zat ik op school onder de Westertoren. We gingen wel eens naar het Anne Frank huis. Dat was toen nog niet zo druk. Kon je gewoon in de middagpauze even binnen lopen........ Als kind speelde ik indiaantje in het Wertheimpark en als volwassene heb ik in de gebroken spiegels van het door Jan Wolkers gemaakte Auswitch monument staan staren, die daar liggen om de herinnering aan al die arme zielen en de verloren illusies levend te houden. Ik heb het monument twee keer gezien nadat schoften het hadden vernield...... Ik speelde op het Entrepotdok, tussen de goederenwagons en ook wel op de Rietlanden, waar nog een klein monument stond ter nagedachtenis aan keesje, een kleine jongen, doodgeschoten tijdens het kooltjes zoeken. Ik speelde op de puinhopen van het Rapenburg, waar eens Joodsche mensen woonden. Ik heb mijn vrouw, ze is Duits, ontmoet in de Semper Oper in Dresden, waar zij als ballerina werkte.... Het heeft mij getekend, mijn illusies gebroken, mij opgezadeld met die eeuwige achterdocht, die Eric bijna humoristisch noemde. Mij gemaakt tot een soort Don Quichotte, die maar tegen onrecht en voor de waarheid blijft vechten. Liefde en kunst hebben mij weggehouden van de waanzin en mij de kracht gegeven om door te gaan. Ik weet dat veel mensen mij als een halve idioot zien, maar ik weet waarom ik mijn mond open trek. Ik heb de film bewegingloos uitgekeken. Ik heb bewondering voor je moed en vakbekwaamheid en ben je zeer dankbaar dat je hem geplaatst hebt. Sjalom aleechem! Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Over Night and Fog: Fred: prachtige muziek bij deze weer schokkende beelden. Daar kan Hans Zimmer een puntje aan zuigen Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Omaha beach Somebody wrote to me ........The composition Omaha Beach almost made me cry.......... With respect Fred Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Omaha Beach I was eight years old on D-Day. I am going to Normandy with my Sister-In-Law's Father, Josep Catanzaro, 29th Infantry Division, who landed at Omaha Beach on D-Day in May. It will be his first trip back since 1944. I also hope to get to The American Cemetery in Luxembourg City and the Museums at Diekurch and Bastogne. God bless all the vets who fought and died. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Nou Fred, het is alweer een tijdje geleden dat ik je site bezocht heb (je banner staat nog steeds op de Engelstalige versie van mijn Normandie website). Prachtig. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Nice Site Hello,This is a very nice site about WW II, I enjoyed looking at the pictures, and because of that a wanted to sign the guestbook, please look also at my personal site and also sign my guestbook. Keep up the good work.Greetz Bjorn Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Net Night en Fog bekeken . . . moet even bijkomen. Het is een emotioneel zwaar beladen onderwerp zonder enige vorm van schoonheid . . . een nare realiteit geproduceerd door krankzinnige geesten. Wat zal het uitputtend zijn om hiervoor muziek te componeren. De opbouw, verwerking, thematiek en het einde waarin het verval door erosie een nieuwe werkelijkheid van het verleden cre?ert Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
Name Robert Osuna I'm looking for any members of the 980th Field Artillery Batallion. My fathers name is Jose Osuna from San Diego, Ca. and was a Medic and Cannonier who landed on the 4 th day. I would like to get information on any reunions that may be scheduled, or just anyone who was in that outfit. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
My grandfather just passed away. He was a fighter pilot in WW II ( an ace i believe). Since then I have become a World War Two fanatic and want to know everything about it. If anybody has any stories or information that i may not know please email me at . Thanks, Chris C.S. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
My friend Fred Vogels from the Netherlands is a brilliant music composer and arranger. I hope some day he can compose music for an Indian film. If you follow his music, it often does not have vocals, but the music relaxes you. You never know -- if one day you hear his mmusic or sound track in an Indian film. Who knows:) Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
My father, Elmer Davenport, was with the 30ID, 119IR, and fought from mid June 1944, thru France, belgium, and Holland. He was in the battle for Mortain, and others I can't remember (he told me this in 1969). He was subsequently captured on October 22nd during the battle for Aachen. He spent 7 months in captivity in Stalag IIA or IXB. There seems to be some discrepancy from what he told me compared to official military records. He saw more than his share of combat. I am so proud of him. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
My Father was with the 357th Infantry Regiment, 90th Division. He was awarded Purple Heart, Bronze Star, Bronze Arrowhead, 5 Batle Stars, Combat Infantry Badge, WWII Victory Medal, and served 3 years. Pop passed away back in 1962 and never told me about his WWII experiences as I was still a youngster. I was in stationed in Germany in my 4 Army years starting in 1972. I hope to retrace my Pop's steps from his WWII Army Days. Fred Vogels @ 2017-09-01, 19:45
