To Ms. Anne Bell,
Iím not sure why Ms. Bell has refused to respond to
my request to speak with her concerning her uncle
It is obvious that
Ms. Van Maanen has poisoned your
mind. This is a woman who has serious issues. When I
wanted to send the
12 pages of documents I have about your uncle in
WWII in Co G Ms. Van Maanen attacked me via FB
message and did not want you to have the
You then blocked me on FB which I found rather
odd. You sent me a copy of your motherís Paratroop
Pamphlet with no return address which is a strange
thing to do as you address and cell phone number is
all over the internet. You are the one who posted
that information online here
That you refused to speak with me is sad as I
have interviewed many Co G men who knew your uncle.
You are only the second 507th family member that
didnít want the information about their relative. I
have spoken with over 150 507th men over the years
and also their families. Ms. Van Maanen has no
interest in the 507th but does in treating relatives
of veterans like a trinket.
I read parts of your book about your uncle on Amazon
and you being a school teaching should have done
your due diligence in regards to Normandy. You have
the term Overlord for the paratroop name but that is
wrong, it is Neptune. Overlord is for the whole part
of the Normandy invasion. Neptune is the paratroop
You should be very careful about dealing with the
ABMC. Attached is an example of what the ABMC does.
They have lied over the years and have done it again
in regard to your uncleís headstone. You will see
Mr. Shatzer lied stated that they hadnít decided
in a March 2017 letter but in reality had done that
in October of last year.
You have gone back and forth with
Nosal and he is the biggest liar of all at the
ABMC. He has repeatedly lied about WWII men buried
in Europe. He said to you that only the Army can
change a headstone (which is true) but changed a
headstone himself with no authority in August of
last year and desecrated a headstone in Normandy.
My information is from documentation, where someone
like Ms. Van Maanen in this case is made up of in
fantasy. She thinks that she ďownsĒ you and no one
else should ever contact you or your family. There
are a lot of Europeans who think like that for some
Ms. Van Maanen is an odd duck to say the least. When
I asked her to forward the documents I have on your
uncle she lost it. She then for some reason sent a
screen shot that she took of you talking with her by
message. Why she sent this to me I still donít
know. It did prove that the ABMC had already decided
to change the headstone this year.
As mentioned above in the email are documents
showing the fraud committed by the ABMC. Be careful
about Nosal as if he you cross him he will have a
headstone ripped down on his say so and have it
replaced. He has done it before. Here is the link
For someone who was a teacher you should really
verify your sources and you havenít done that in
relation to Nosal. He lies on a regular basis for
the ABMC. Donít take my word on that, here is a link
with the documentation showing some of his lies.
near the bottom of the page. Here is another link
showing Nosal almost complete lack of understanding
ABMC in letters/emails back and forth with you
said that the headstone canít say the 82nd Abn Div.
There is a problem with what he has said about that
letter to you in October of 2016. The 507th and
the 508th were technically only attached to the 82nd
Abn Div as well as the
501st that was attached to the 101st Abn Div.
The only problem with the ABMC saying they could
only put the 507th and not the 82nd is that all of
the headstones at the Normandy American Cemetery
101st Abn Div on it for the 501st.
This means that either the
501st ones are wrong or your uncles are wrong
by leaving off the 82nd Abn Div on the headstones.
Nosal in his emails back and forth with you said
that the 507th wasnít part of the Order of Battle
for the 82nd Abn Din in Normandy. Once again that
Attached is the After Action 82nd Report and it
shows clearly they were part of the order of
battle for the 507th. By letting the ABMC to change
your uncleís headstone and not put the 82nd on it is
an insult to you and your family and all of the
507th & 508th men buried without the 82nd Abn Div
for the men killed in Normandy.
This means that all of the headstones in Europe for
the 501st men would have to be changed to 501st
Prcht Inf Regt, not 501st Prcht Inf 101st Abn Div or
all of the 507th, 508th and 401st 2nd Bn menís
headstones have to be changed to reflect that
I have been trying for years to get your uncleís
headstone changed from the 17th Abn Div to the 82nd
Abn Div. You and I even spoke about this back in
2005/06 time period about this. I have other
headstones corrected over the years. The ABMC back
then refused to change that information about your
uncle. And they still will leave it incomplete by
leaving off the 82nd Abn Div part. Attached are the
101st ones that do have their Division listed while
the 82nd ones (507th and 508th along with the 2nd Bn
of the 401st) do not.
Why the ABMC has dishonored the 82nd from those
three units is unknown but this issue started in the
early 1950s when the headstones were put up.
I look forward to your response. I could have shown
you via phone about this and explained it in 10
minutes as opposed to 3 hours writing this letter to
