What a wonderful man Bill Haney was!! I will never
forget his kindness and help to me when I first started researching my
Dad's World War II history. I went to my first National Ex-POW
meeting not knowing a single soul . Bill stayed several hours late after
the Stalag Luft I reunion night meeting talking to me and a widow of an
ex- Stalag Luft I POW, answering our questions and explaining the photos
of Stalag Luft I. He got my address and a couple of weeks later he
mailed me a lot of information he had accumulated on the camp. A
lot of which was the basis for forming this website.
