In summer 1945 I was 8 years old on a river 10km from Pilsen therean U.S. soldier saving my life when I cut my foot. Perhaps you could help me in finding him. Maybe you know of an address I could write to for information THANK YOU.

Jim from USA 12/2010
My dad was in Pattoms's 3rd Army (97th Division; 386th Regiment). He was in Pilsen on VE day. I would love to attend the May 2011 celebration of the liberation anniversary.
Theodore from USA 11/2010
Thank you for remembering the USA. Will be traveling to your city Pilsen for vacation next year Is it best to travel by bus or train to sorrounding areas? Thanks
Mick from USA 10/2010
My thanks go out to the residents of Plzen for honoring the U. S. Military and the high price that was paid by so many for the Liberation of Europe. Sadly, too many in my own country (USA) don't give our military the honor they deserve, thanks for showing us how it should be done!
Nick from USA 09/2010
It is indeed moving. I am a tour operator in the USA organizing groups to various European cities. I would like to include Plsen in my next May 2011 European itinerary. Could you please advise what manifestations will be held (I presume less than this year, since the full celebration is held every 5 years). I might even have a few WWII veterans in our group Thank you.
Marilyn from USA 09/2010
I am so moved by your Liberation Celebration - reading about it brought tears to my eyes. I am interested in being there for the May 2011 VE Day celebration and would very much like information to schedule a trip from Texas. Thank you!
Cindy from USA 09/2010
You are doing a fine job on the website. My comment, mainly, is on the email I just received on your towns May Celebration for being freed from Nazis. I quote: ...Every 5 years, Pilzen conducts the Liberation Celebration of the City of Pilsen in the Czech Republic. May 6th, 2010, marked the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Pilsen by General George Patton's 3rd Army. Pilsen is the town that every American should visit. Because they love America and the American Soldier....& it went on further... I have tears in my eyes as I write. We seldom hear of anyone in the world who knows of or much less is grateful for ALL the USA Sacrifices around the world. Thank you! Now that I know this, if EVER my hubby and I go to Europe, we will surely visit your town & surrounding Area. Thank you again.
Terry from USA 08/2010

Your pages are very useful for my friends from Great Britain, especially about Pilzen, Prague, Sumava Mountains, Cesky Krumlov. My friends admire Czech Republic and try to spek Czech. They took part in the celebration of 20th anniversary of 17th november and they are happy that we can travel too. Olga and their friends from Stradford on Avon.
