I had an uncle Edward Galensky from Muse, PA who served in the 12th Armored. I've never met him and his brother (my father) has long passed on. I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who knew Ed and could share some information about him.

Thanks, and hats off to you guys.

Dear Duane, Contact the unit representative for the 493 Armored Field Artillery to the Hellcat News:

Jesse Rollin, 1078 Park Avenue Ext.
P.O. Box 385,
Clearfield, PA 16830

Phone: 814 765-5634.

He will put a notice in the Hellcat News. The 17,000 member Roster on this web site says that Ed Galensky was in Battery A.

Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg

DEAR DUANE:
HI. I AM YOUR FIRST COUSIN. YOU MAY NOT REMEMBER ME I WAS VERY YOUNG WHEN I SAW YOU LAST. YOUR DAD (UNCLE JOE) ALSO WE CALLED HIM SMOKEY JOE, IS (WAS) MY DAD'S BROTHER (RICHARD / DICK). SO WAS ED, JOHN, (DOC) STUART/ STANLEY GALENSKY. ANY WAY WE FINALLY TRACKED DOWN UNCLE ED THOUGH HE & DAD WERE IN WW II, HE DISAPPEARED AFTER THE WAR. WELL, ANY WAY HE HAD LIVED IN CALIFORNIA THOUGH HAS BEEN DECEASED FOR SEVERAL YEARS. HE WAS MARRIED & HAD TWO SONS OR THREE. OUR LATE AUNT JEAN'S DAUGHTER BETTY (OUR COUSIN) CONTACTS HER OFF & ON SINCE WE FOUND OUT ABOUT HIM. DAD DID GET TO SEE OLD PICTURES OF HIM & HIS WIFE, CHILDREN ETC. BUT HE WAS ALREADY DECEASED. DIED RATHER YOUNG. SO NOW AS FAR AS WE KNOW ALL THE BROTHERS OUR DECEASED.
IF YOU WANT MORE INFORMATION YOU CAN EMAIL ME AT GLOSERVANT77@AOL.COM MY BROTHER MICHAEL (MIKE) HAPPENED TO ORDER A BOOK GALENSKY'S & THAT IS HOW WE TRACKED HIM DOWN. SO AFTER ED'S WIFE WROTE BACK MY MOM (WILMA) GOT TO TALK TO HER & I BELEIVE MY DAD DID & FOUND OUT MORE. SHE WAS A DOCTOR, EVENTUALLY REMARRIED. UNCLE ED WAS TALL & LIKED TO FISH ALSO. HE NEVER WANTED TO COME BACK AFTER THE WAR TO THE AREA WHERE HE WAS RAISED PA DUE TO BAD MEMORIES OF STEP DAD ETC. I HAVEN'T SEEN YOU OR GARY BUT PROBABLY ONCE OR TWICE WHEN I WAS AROUND THE AGES OF 3 TO 8 PROBABLY. MAYBE ANOTHER TIME WHEN I WAS A LITTLE OLDER. I WAS IN MY LATE TEENS WHEN UNCLE JOE PASSED AWAY OR MAYBE A LITTLE OLDER. I WASN'T LIVING IN THE AREA AT THE TIME & MISSED HIS FUNERAL. I NEVER GOT TO GO TO UNCLE JOHN'S EITHER. TOO BAD WE COULDN'T FIND OUT SOONER ABOUT UNCLE ED BEFORE EVERYONE PASSED AWAY. MY DAD WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT GOT TO KNOW BEFORE HE PASSED AWAY THAT HE WAS ALIVE ALL THOSE YEARS & NO ONE KNEW. HE CRIED. BUT HE WAS ALREADY GONE BY THE TIME WE FOUND OUT ANY THING. DAD ALWAYS HURT SO DID ANUT (JO) JOSEPHINE & THE OTHERS CONCERNED & WONDERED WHAT HAPPENED TO UNCLE ED. WELL, YOU CAN STILL MAYBE CONTACT HIS WIFE & THIER SONS.
CHILDREN.
EMAIL IF YOU DESIRE ANY OTHER INFORMATION.
