My Father, George William Anderson, was with the 44th Tank Battalion, Company A, from late 1944 through war's end and the occupation of Japan.

Dad passed away in 1989, and I am now trying to piece together his units wartime activities and accomplishments. I do know that he saw minor action in New Guinea, and major action in the Phillipines, particulary the liberation of Luzon and the Santo Tomas prison.

Do any of you good folks have any information or leads you wish to share with me?
Thank you,
Bill Anderson

...my Dad, FE "Ed" Drennon was in A Company. He passed away in 2005. All of his effects, including a diary of operations on Leyte and Luzon, at my sister's house in Georgia...I'll try and put something together.

My father was in Co. B of the 44th and drove a tank (Yankee or West Frankfort Thunderbolt). He participated in the Manila battle. His name was Lavern (potsie) Lawrence. Any information would be appreciated.
