Mr. David Atkinson, Superintendent of the Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery, I received a letter;

In response to your request, enclosend is the adoption certificate for the following soldier: Sergeant Cecil E. Hill.
We thank you for the respect you show the soldiers buried here at Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery and are most pleased to send you the certificate.

Adoption Certificate:

Me and my family are proud and honored to be given this certificate.

We do hope to find Cecill E. Hills next of kin.

This website is dedicated to all Allied Paratroopers of World War Two. They became a 'Band of Brothers' who enlisted for a new type of warfare. They jumped into occupied Holland on Septmber 17th 1944 like Angels from the Sky. We will honor their heritage.
