My little village where my family has lived for several generations was taken by the canadians on the afternoon of june 6th and the place I live now was the place they settled their camp. 20 years ago working on the field, we found this wrist plate lost here. I have kept it preciously and hope we can find family of Curtis M Cole to give it back. We will never thank enought for the sacrifice of your life. I have a very vivid emotion reading the story of this you ne and brave man. If by chance anyone is reading this, please contact me to help find his family
