Mr. Grant, If you click on BOOKS AND
WRITTEN EXPERIENCES on the left, scroll
down to UNIT HISTORY OF THE 43D TANK BATTALION. Read chapter on Company A. I have learned that your brother was declared
Missing in Action on January 17th, 1945.
See page with 77 written at the bottom.
It is possible that there are other mentions of your brother in this chapter, but I didn't see any other comments.

I also suggest that you contact the Unit
Representative to the Hellcat News.
Mark Ault (765) 453 8881

Tell him your brother was in Company A.

Also, see the Oral History Videos on the left side. Click on Battalion. look for
Co. A 43.
