The New Britain Museum of American Art is indebted to Alex van Oss in Washington, DC for recording the accounts of “Lusigny Incident” and to U. S. Army COL Dan Pipes who lent his voice to the recording of the declassified Continental Operations Report of the 133rd Armored Combat Engineers (European Theater of Operations, July 1944 to May 1945) while deployed in Baghdad, Iraq in early April of 2016. We wish to thank Saher Al-Tawal and Nicholas Giacobbe at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq for facilitating the audio recording for COL Pipes.

The artist wishes to thank the many individuals in Lusigny, France who were so welcoming and took such a personal interest in the research: Philippe and Caroline Desrousseaux, Sophie and Olivier Ducceschi and Nicolas Stépien.

Additonally, the artist wishes wish to thank the families of John C. Simcik (1921-2015) and Harvey M. Schiller (1921-2011) for their cooperation and whole-hearted support of this project.
