Looking for info on my father, flew a piper cub as an artillery spotter in the 493rd, arrived in theater just after the Battle of the Bulge, but don't see him in your member list.

Dear George, Look at the left column. Go to
BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES. Scroll down
to THE PICTORIAL HISTORY OF THE 493D ARMORED FIELD
ARTILLERY. Go to page 93 (printed on the bottom of the
page) There you will see some pictures and names.
I could not find your father's name, but his picture could be there. Also see page 29. There may well be other pages
that mention the air spotters.

If you want more information, contact the Unit Representative to the Hellcat News:

Marvin Bertelson, (408)739 5958.
No email.

Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg

Dear Mr. King, (Piper cub),

Sorry, I erred in addressing you by your father's name.

Dear Piper Cub,

I just discovered a video on the 12th armored site:

Go to VIDEOS in the left column. Click on the film:

EYES OF THE ARMY

Again, your father's name is not mentioned, but maybe
you can identify his picture.

Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg
