|These are for the most part stories
extracted from "The Capture of Attu," a
book of "The Infantry Journal" series
prepared by the War Department. Rene "Frenchy"
Thibault, stationed on Attu in 1946, was kind
enough to make available his copy of this rare (and
out of print) book that vividly details the events
leading to and including the re-taking of Attu. See
Mailbag" for additional stories folks had
written about their tour of duty on both Shemya and
Attu during W.W.II. The Shemya Mailbag was a
periodical published by Dan Lange
(stationed on Shemya in 1946) of "The Shemya
Veterans Association." Additional stories are
added as they become available.
