Dear Marcee, Mathew M. Bader served in two battalions:
Company D of the 23d Tank Battalion, and also
he was in a company of the 56th Armored Infantry Battalion.
It will take some time, but I may be able to figure out
which company he was in. Click on the left column:
DEATH OF AN AMERICAN COMBAT COMMAND.
Also, check out the ORAL HISTORY VIDEOS, for men in the
same battalion. Each video is about an hour long, by the way. Then click on BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES.
Find the HISTORY OF THE 56TH AIB. Also find the History of the 23d Tank Battalion, or whatever that title is.
Also, contact the Unit Reps to the Hellcat News:
They can put announcements in the paper.
Otis Shull, 56th AIB
Brad Dressler, 23d Tank
Geoff Lackey, 23d Tank
Hope this all works out.
