I have no intentions at all with any books, internet, anything. I would rather have Gregg, Jim, Ken and others do that.
I just want future researches to not have to go through what my co-workers, my family and myself have done to find these flags. Anything I find I put on this site and only this site. I consider our generation lucky with the internet and more and more books coming out on battles. I just want to get to the bottom of all of this one day. The thrill to me is just finding them. I am in the Army, I have good job, great family, very blessed to have 4 healthy boys. I have told my family, if I should "pass on" say tomorrow, to keep up the research.
It looks like I will be in the Washington Dc area till my 20 years is up, which is in 3 years. I have offers with civilian engineering companies that will pay me double what I am making in the Army. I definitely like the Washington Dc area, the LOC and National Archives are a huge help. If I move away, I wont have that access anymore.
When I retire in the future, I will have a lot of time to do research. I will not give up on this. I am determined to find captured flags that are unknown.
Please let me know what you find out on the 154th New York's Regimental flag. Maybe I came across something new, maybe not. I am trying it from every angle.
Thank you, Sir for any help!
