Welcome to the 317th Engineer Alumni Association!
Welcome to the new social media website for the 317th Engineer Alumni Association. This website is dedicated to those who have served as a member of the 317th Engineer Battalion. Whether it was while the unit was assigned to Europe, or back here in the states, you are welcome to participate.
As part of the new website, we have added a social media aspect to the site in order to allow you to create an account and interact with one another, rather than just a stagnate website. In addition, we have added a forums section where users can have focused discussions. As you will see there is a forum for each era of the 317th, as well as for each company. In these forums you may discuss memories, ISO's (In Search Of), discuss upcoming reunions or get-together's, or anything else related to that particular forum. Since the forum's are new, there is not much discussion at the moment but that is where you come into play. Take time to stop by and introduce yourself and let others know you are here.
UPDATE- After many issue with Spammers attacking our website, we have implement new measures to minimize those attacks. One of the new measures includes a verification system to ensure that an actual human is attempting to create an account or login. You will have to match pictures to the word that the system lists in order to login. We have already seen a total elimination of the successful login's and postings of internet bots out there. This means that you will no longer receive random private messages in the system.
