Day after my grandmother Ruth Livingood of Union Town PA ..died. I realized she never spoke of nor did i ever once ask about my grandfather Laurence Edgar Schroyer Friendsvill MD. Lawrence as the army likes to spell it "W" laurence was killed froma head wound. German sniper I recon. In Tauberbischofsheim on March 31 when 56th "TASK FORCE NORTON" was to obtain a bridgehead cross main near oschenfurt, continue to klitzgien.

I have found info through family as every GOV institute seems to want more money i don't have, or all caught fire in St Louis

My father, Albert P. Rivette, also served in Headquarters company, 56th Armd Inf. He was the motor sergeant for the battalion.

Would be very interested in trading what information we have - maybe we can both learn something new.
