I am looking for information, especially photos of my Grandfather Walter Baedke. He served with 12th AD, 714th Battalion CO A. He is still alive but doesnt talk much of his time in WWII, but he did pass on some picture and memorabilla to me. He does have a few photos but I was hoping to surprise him with some new ones that he has never seen before. Thanks for any help!!

Dear R Beadke, You should email John Critzas, also of A-714 Tank Battalion.
John is a past President of the Association
and is the interim editor of the Hell Cat
News. John should know about pictures,
video tapes, veterans, etc. relating to A 714.

His email is:

The12tharmored@aol.com

Thank you for the information!! I did email him and he did know my grandfather well. I am sending him some of the pics that I have to be put on the website, I am hoping to find some more from others that may have some with him in them. Thanks.
