Hello and thank you for this site.

I have begun researching my great uncle, Clyde E. Moore. His headstone reads: TEC 5 MAINT BN 12 ARMD DIV World War II. I gather that he was a Technician 5th grade, in the 12th Armored Division. The only Maintenance Battalion I have come across is the 134th Ordnance.

Please let me know if this was likely his Battalion, or if there were others. He was born 12/03/1905 and passed away 02/03/1953. I recently had the honor of visiting his resting place in West Hill Cemetery in Sherman, and a kind soul had placed pretty blue flowers on his grave. If there is anyone who remembers him or his service, I would be very grateful. I took photos of his headstone and would be happy to share it.

Thank you for your time and service.

Hello Julia, Please contact the Unit
Rep to the Hellcat News:

Ken Klinedinst
kbk@conknet.com

He will place a notice in the Hellcat News
requesting information. I note that Clyde
E. Moore is not on the 17,000 man roster.
This will be corrected.

I would like to add that he was born in
1905, and he must have filled a very important skill requirement, or the Army
would not have taken him in his late 30s.
It is likely that he enlisted and was not
drafted. Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg
