Daniel Truesdell served with the 134th Ord Mn Bn. I can remember him talking about little Joe, I used to write to Victor Schmidt, he was the company clerk. I buried Daniel at the Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, Mi this year. It would be nice to hear from any of his friends who might still be living. I probably met many of you during my stay at Camp Barkely, Texas. Dan and I were married 62 years. He really had a great sense of humor, said you got out of jail sooner than that for killing someone. Needless to say my heart is broken and I miss him terribly. He sent me some cool v-mail with some of his pics on it. You were a great bunch of guys and you really did a great job for this country. I remember him talking about Ping a young boy you just kept around because he had noone, also the day he dressed in a German uniform and none of you realized it. Said he used to go fishing with a hand grenade, didn't have a shower more than twice in a year, and he was the only one that had a descent pair of boots (Igot a stamp (shoe stamp) sent to FT Bragg, North Carolina and had them send him a great pair of boots.
May all of you be as blessed as I have been.

I am a Legacy Member of the association and recently took over the responsibilities, of 134th AOB unit rep job, from Don Hering who wanted to retire. I put your message in the September issue of the Hellcat News.

Dear Mrs. Truesdell:
My uncle, Henry Delebo was a member of the 134th Maint. Ord Bttn. I posted earlier this year to see if anyone recalled him. Unfortunately, he passed away over ten years ago. He was originally from Langdon, ND and was quite an inventor. Alledgedly, he was commended for some invention that attached to Sherman tanks. If you have any information about Henry Delebo, I would greatly appreciate an email.

Looking for information on the 358 Harbor Craft Co. which I believe was part of the 134 Armored Ordnance Company.
Any ideas where I can obtain 12th Armored and 135 AOB patches for a shadow box.

I hope that you will somehow be able to see this note. My dad, John Bassett, was in the 134th and his driver was Victor. Your recollection of "Ping" sort of rings a bell.
Would you happen to know when Victor was killed? My dad said that Victor was his driver and that one day he took a vehicle out on his own and ran over an IED.
Thanks in advance.
