  1. This is designated wetlands, NOT to be developed. The river is pristine. This area is part of the Okeefenokee water shed. This really is my home, and I took the photo. We shall hope and pray that all of our homes are not destroyed. Bear.

  2. I just have to show you this
    I was looking at the integration of black and white troops back in 1952 to 1954 to no more segregation in the Army.
    I remember the 547th Engineer Battalion.

    The 547th Engineer Battalion was part of the 11th Engineer Group 7 Army in 1954 off and on tell 1970.
    I seen a lot of photos of General Eisenhower made visits to the 547th Eng BN back in 1951 and 1952.
    They came to Germany in 1947 they were in US Constabulary at that time.

    The 547th Engineer Battalion traces its history back to its predecessor unit, the 1328th Engineer Construction Battalion. The 1328th, an all black unit, was constituted and activated on 1 March, 1944 at Camp Claiborne, Louisiana, from elements of the 34th Engineer Training Group. The battalion participated in training as a construction unit in the swamps surrounding the camp and in the vicinity of Lake Ballentine, Louisiana.
    I remember getting E-mail from William Bishop he was in the 547th from 1948 to 1951.

    Trying to traces the history of the 547th Eng BN. that was the 1328th Engineer Construction Battalion in WW-2 at Camp Claiborne, Louisiana.

    I am in shock what I have read here I am glad the African American people stood up for their rights in WW-2.
