My grandfather was Sgt. Orville H. Long of HQ Company, 714th Tank Battalion. I'm looking for information on the activities of this battalion.

Dear Tom R,

As a first step, please contact the Unit Reps for the 714th
Tank Battalion: Pat and Mary Koenig
(605) 654 2181.

Also, contact John Critzas

I am not certain, but I do not believe that there is a
unit history available. Certainly the Koenigs or John
Critzas will know. However, there is plenty of history
available. Click on Books and Written Experiences
to the left side of the screen. Go to the first few books
on the history of the division. Also read about
Herrlisheim. There are undoubtedly other sources.

Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg
