My Uncle Ben was in the 23rd Tank Battalion, HQ CO. My Dad and I were wondering if anyone knew Ben and if there are photographs that someone may have of him. Thanks.

Hello, I am a legacy member of the Association. You might email Brad
Dressler, Unit Rep. He will put an announcement in the Hellcat News.
Also try James Francis, Unit Historian
Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg

Captain Virgil L. Thorp was the CO of Hq. Company. Your Uncle would have been under his command. Mr. Thorp is a member of the 12th AD Association, and his contact info is listed in the online roster. On the menu bar on the left side of your screen, just click on "12th Armored Division Association." Good luck in your search.

Ken, I don't remember Ben Cassara myself. Virgil Thorp and Jim Feezel were in HQ Co. and hopefully will recall him. I don't have an Email address for either. Here's what I do have:
Virgil Thorp (816) 765-4234, 10312 E. 95th Ter., Kansas City, MO 64134
James Feezel (256) 355-6421, 2804 Wayne Dr., Decatur, AL 35603
