I am the son of Stan Blechman (third row in the middle). Dad is 87, in relatively good health and living in New Jersey. He was thrilled that we found this site.
I may have some additional pictures to post – is there a way to do that?
Hi Michael, it’s great to hear from you. I think the best way to get pics posted is to email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m happy to do it. – rand
Hi Rand –
Just wanted to let you know that my Dad turns 91 years old today!
Living with my Mom (his wife of 60 years) and in relatively good health!
– Michael Blechman (I sent you an email with a few photos)
Happy birthday, Stan!
Does your father remember Gus “Greek” Kollias? I am his granddaughter and have been trying to trace his life in the US for over 40 years.
To Georgia footman:
My Dad treasured his friendship with Gus Kollias and attended the reunion that Gus organized in the 1990s. My Dad died four years ago this week (July 25). He was Tech Sgt. Bill Mueller of Madison, Wis. I remember Gus married fairly late in life and had two boys.
