Hello,

I found your father's name on the list of
17,000 members on the left side of this screen. I note that you say something about
Burma. The 12th was not in Burma, UNLESS,
your father spent some service time there
with another Division. The 44th Tank Battalion was in the Phillipines, and perhaps elsewhere in that region, and they
were once part of the 12th Armored.

I simply do not understand your reference to
Burma.

I am repeating below a message I sent 2 days ago
to another person asking about the 56th,
H.Q.



I am traveling for the month. Please
contact me on March 1 or so, and I will try and help.
Meanwhile, you can contact the Unit Rep
to the Hellcat News:

Ed Pierce piercejr9@aol.com
609 585 6315

Also, read the diary entitled
HISTORY OF THE 56TH ARMORED INFANTRY BATTALION.

(Look on the left side under BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES)

Also, read the report on Herrlisheim by
Dale Miller. Also read in the column on
the left

ORAL HISTORY VIDEOS, and look for veterans
from the 56th, especially HQ. I know
a guy from HQ, but I don't know his
phone number. His address is:

Phil Clarke, 23 Evergreen St.
Cortland, NY 13045

Ask him for his phone number, as he prefers
talking to writing. Tell him I sent you.
