We also retain a wide variety of books on travel, self-help, collegiate sports, children’s series, local and national cookbooks, and the largest selection of Lodge cast-iron cookware.

Come in, have a cup of “the best coffee in Cobb County” in our in-house coffee shop, where you will find locally roasted organic coffees, teas and freshly baked desserts right from the neighborhood, all while you browse through our extensive inventory of books, maps, models (see our “Scale Models” page), prints and photographs.

The American Legion
www.legion.org


Chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness, the American Legion is the nation’s largest veterans service organization, committed to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans.

The Association for the Recovery of the Fallen in Eastern Europe
or "Verein zur Bergung Gefallener in Osteuropa" (VBGO)
http://www.vbgo.de/?set_language=en


This organization is composed of a dedicated team of volunteers from various European countries searching for missing war dead regardless of their nationality. The organization is strictly non-political. They view their work also as a contribution to peace-building - one of the reasons why they cooperate closely with teams from other countries, e.g. Poland and Russia.

Even though their name suggests that the focus of their work lies on Eastern Europe (including Eastern Germany), they carry-out excavations in Western Europe as well. Last November, for example, they were in Bannholz in the Siegfried Line continuing their search for two missing American soldiers of the 94th Infantry Division. Here's a short article on their work in that area:

(NB that this convers the previous excavation, i.e. the one we conducted there in November 2015).
