I was hoping someone knew my great uncle. His name was Willard W Atkinson. He was KIA on April 11, 1945. My grandmother never knew what happened other than he was killed. His body is buried in France. Please, any information would be wonderful.

I forgot to mention that Willard was in the 66th AIB.

Your great Uncle was in Company C, 66th Armored Infantry Battalion. There is a book by Weston L. Emery entitled:
"C-66". This book contains a few very important pages
about your great uncle. I can copy these pages for you,
if you email me your address:

geomike@buffalo.edu

Otherwise, you can buy the book from the 12th Armored
Museum. contact Mr. Bill Lenches:

wilcomodels@hotmail.com

(I think your family would like to have this book).
Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg

Michael, I would greatly appreciate any information you could share with me. It's only my dad and I left. My grandmother (willard's siser) was heart broken that we would never know how he died.
My email address is deathwalker713@yahoo.com.
Many thanks to you,
Amy Nichols
