Note from Al Erickson (69-669)

I graduated with Company 669. I have my graduation program. I have found some inconsistencies between my Official Graduation Review Program and your website. My Program indicates that Company 694 was graduated Friday 06 FEB 1970 along with my Company 669 not 12 FEB 1970.

Ceremonies began at 1400hrs.  Most of the names and ranks are the same except for the Brigade, Regiment and Battalion Commanders. My program also shows J. E. Glebs as the Honorman in Company 694. -- Al Erickson

The Folks Behind the GG Archives

The GG Archives is the work and passion of two people, Paul Gjenvick, a professional archivist, and Evelyne Gjenvick, a curator. Paul earned a Masters of Archival Studies - a terminal degree from Clayton State University in Georgia, where he studied under renowned archivist Richard Pearce-Moses. Our research into the RMS Laconia and SS Bergensfjord, the ships that brought two members of the Gjønvik family from Norway to the United States in the early 20th century, has helped us design our site for other genealogists. The extent of original materials at the GG Archives can be very beneficial when researching your family's migration from Europe.
