Hello, I am a Legacy Member of the 12th Armored Association. I suggest that you contact the Unit Reps for the 23d Tank Battalion.

Brad Dressler, 615 382 6959, brdsy@comcast.net


Jack Treaster 810 765 3117 ,


or the unit historian

James Francis, 925 988 0709

The reps can put an announcement in the Hellcat News.
Also, take a look at the left hand column.
Books and Written Experiences:

There is a book on the history of the 23d Tank Battalion.

Good luck!

My grandfather, Warren Patterson, served in A Co., 23rd Tank Battalion. He died in April 1945. I don't know much about him and his service, but I've been reading the book written by Jim Francis on this website. I think I'll email him to see if he remembers my grandfather. If you'd like to contact me, my email address is krismgonzalez@yahoo.com. I look forward to hearing from you. Kris

My father, Walter E. Lockard also werved in the 23rd. We have some pictures, but little history as he passed away in 1977
