Name: Benny Redman
Date: 2010-02-27
Crewmember? Father was on LST 794 and LCT 1392
From: St. Peters, Mo.
Comments: My father Millard Bogard Redman is pictured in the initiation pit in the photo labeled "spraying crew". He is the taller man, he was about age 34 at the time with wife and two daughter at home in St. Louis, Mo. Sometime after the invasion of Okinawa my father returned home, and spent over a year at the Jefferson Barracks Hospital in St. Louis recovering from ailments, possibly poison water, not sure about that and he suffered with jungle rot the rest of his life. He died on Aug 31, 1971, he was 61 years of age. Wish I could have known more about his war days but he did not talk much about it. Would appreciate any information about him that you are your members may have or recollect.

Comments: Hello. My name is Kyle Nappi. I am 18 years old and I live in Ostrander, Ohio ( USA ). I was wondering if you could do me a favor.

I have a big interest in history, specifically WWII. I collect military medals, patches, badges, insignia, field gear, and a very unique thing, veteran autographs. I have a collection of autographs from military veterans who served during WWI, WWII, Korea , Vietnam , Gulf War, and the present war in Iraq .

I have been interested in history for over 6 years now, and I have collected the autographs and stories from nearly 1,600 veterans in 20 countries. The oldest veteran is currently 112 years old and the youngest enlisted at age 14. I have autographs from Pearl Harbor survivors, D-Day veterans, airman, POWs, USS Indianapolis survivors, Holocaust survivors, and even German soldiers!

Back in June, I was interview by Brent Davis, who works for PBS. He called my in early-June and asked if I wanted to come down to talk about my collection for an interview that was to shown online. Once, I was there, I met Mr. Davis, and he did the first interview about my collection. After that, he and others that worked there, thought that I had a good amount in my collection, so they asked me if they could interview me for "The Columbus World War II Roadshow." They mentioned that it was to come on (in Central-Ohio) before some of the episodes of Ken Burns� "The War." You can find this interview on YouTube under "Kyle Nappi."

There have been several other people have taken the time to post my request online and in newspapers. There are too many for me to list, but if you go to Google or Yahoo and search �Kyle Nappi� you can find most of them.

Recently, I also had the privilege of going to Washington, D.C. during the early part of March. I was invited to the Pentagon for a Ceremony honoring WWI veterans. I was able to meet with the last American WWI veteran, Frank Buckles.

My main purpose for writing it to share with you that people from our generation do remember the past and the sacrifices that were made for our great country. I would greatly appreciate it if you could pass the word around that there are people who remember. Thank you very much for your time.
