Another searches for her lost hero.

June 20, 2013

I am pleased that the niece of PFC Heinz George Rodies, Co L, 262nd Regiment, 66th Panther Division, found this blog that tells about finding a family hero lost almost 70 years ago.  PFC Rodies’ name is listed on the memorial Wall of the Missing at the cemetery at Colville-Sur-Mer, Normandy, at Omaha Beach.  Six years ago I placed a wreath in the water above the place where PFC Rodies and hundreds of others’ bodies remain under 150 feet of water. The wreckage of the SS Leopoldville has been designated to be an American military cemetery, although it has been dived many times.
