Looking for anyone who knew my Uncle. He died on Jan. 16, 1945. Also any information about medals awarded to our family in his behalf.

I knew Bill Houghton and his wife Dale well. I was a very close buddy with him. I went to Nashville several times when he was dating Dale. Will be glad to correspond with you

I know that this is going to sound crazy but my brother & I didn't even know he was married, maybe you could shed some light on this subject, it would be very helpful.
Thanks,
Debbi

Hi Debbi,

Did you know your uncle is buried in Epinal American Cemetery, Epinal France? Many of the 12th AD C-66 AIB are buried there, including my uncle.

If you or anyone reading this needs help with research I am not an expert but I have a few ideas which may help in you quest.

Also please consider joining the 12th Armored Division Association and attending their annual and regional reunions. This group of Veterans and their families are dedicated to carrying on the legacy they started more than sixty years ago.

If I can help please email me at

kbk@conknet.com

Regards,

I did notice that Bill Houghton is mentioned several times in my father's book C-66: A WWII Chronicle of an Armored Infantry Company , of which he was a member. The book is temporarily not listed on this site, but you can either go to Amazon.com or write him at EMERYwebrg@aol.com. He also has a web site at www.c-66.com. I hope this helps
