1) George Jones (S.Sgt)- Harrison Valley, Pa.
2) Gene Sabin - Auburn, Mi
3) Arthur "Shorty" Hoch -Rt3 Independence, Mo
4) Lesile Martin - Rt CB Kingsport, Tn
5) Stanely Potter - 108 Freeman St. Woodbridge, New Jersey
6) Roy Ganus (Cpl) Rt2 Lakeland, Florida

These gentlemen are in a photo sitting with my father-in-law with their names on the back of the photo. We have other photos as well that dad had taken while he was in Germany. He also has a couple of photos with a Panzer tank with him and a buddy standing by it and on the tank is written in large white letters "PANZER KAPUT". Anyone recognize that and where it was located.

Thanks for your time and help

Larry Mitchell

Dear Larry, I am not sure whether you have seen the modern roster; some of these men may be alive but I have not checked.




Have you seen the book by Emery:

C-66?

This can be purchased from the Museum.

You should contact the Unit Representative
who can put a notice in the Hellcat News.

George O'Bryan, geoo@htc.net

618 282 6079

I will get back to you with more information
but I am dealing with a monthlong backlog
of email.

Dear Larry, I have checked the names against the most recent Roster. None of these are listed, and I presume they may not
be alive. You might check a possible family
member: Myrl Sabin, 212 S. Franklin St.,
Byron, Illinois, 61010-0058
815 234 7642


Also, contact the unit Rep to the Hellcat News:

Thanks very much Mike for the info. I'll try to contact Mr. Sabins relative you have informed me of and I George is putting something in the Hellcat news for me. tks

I've also been in contact with Ken K. who has been very helpful also. We've talked on the phone and he's checking a couple of things out for me as well. I'm also sending him copies of some photos I have of Dads' and he's taking them down to the reunion in Texas with him. If you're there please look Ken up. I think that's a great way to get first hand knowledge out about my father-in-law and also help others find info about their family as well.

I truly appreciate all the help and can't wait to hear from Ken after the reunion is over.

God Bless all our service men and women everywhere.

Thanks to all again for your help

Larry Mitchell
