Dear Striker, The "17,000 Men" Roster does not give your Dad's Company, but he was in
the 66th Armored Infantry Battalion. There is a wonderful book about Company C of the
66th. "C-66", for sale at the Museum. This book has a roster for that company, and
your Dad was not in Company C. That leaves
Co. A, B or Headquarters Co. I suggest that you contact the Unit Representative to
the Hellcat News:
George O'Bryan, 618-282-6079


If I were in your position, I would first
try the telephone, as I do not know if he
uses email regularily.

Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg
