Hello, Raymond B Schneider appears to have been in
Headquarters Company within the Division Headquarters.
(See the "17,000 Men" Roster). If you look at "Organization and Equipment of the 12th Armored" (Left side of screen),
you will see that Division Headquarters had 3 light tanks.
On the other hand, if Raymond Schneider was in a tank
battalion, there were plenty of tanks, including some in the Headquarters Company of the Battalion.
There were 3 tank battalions, 23d, 43d and 714th. The 43d roster does not mention Raymond Schneider.
In summary, you should search first, Division Headquarters, and its HQ company), then HQ companies of the 23d and 714th Tank Battalions.
Contact these unit representatives:
Div. HQ: W.W. Hardin: firstname.lastname@example.org
23d tank battalion: geoff Lackey: email@example.com
and Jim Francis, firstname.lastname@example.org
714th Tank battalion: koenig_Mary@hotmail.com
Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg, email@example.com
