My father was George J. Soper. He served in Company A of the 17th Armored Infantry Battalion. Prior to finding your website, that was all I knew of my father's service. My thanks also to F. George Hatt, Jr. for providing the 17th AIB Historical Information. I am still in search of my father's military records, however the information I found here provides a detailed account I would have never dreamed of learning. My father passed away March 11, 1994.
