looking for any surviving members of 44th tank battalion who may have known my dad

Hello, Ignacio Ortiz is not on the (incomplete) 17,000 Men Roster on the left side. Robert Rutledge is the historian for the 44th Tank Battalion. Ask him for leads.

bobrutl@yahoo.com

The 44th was part of the 12th Armored and then detached and sent to New Guinea? and then to the Phillipines. After the war the
men joined the 12th Armored Association, but
their participation stopped about the year 2000 (in the Hellcat News).

Click on ORAL HISTORY VIDEOS to the left.
Click on Battalion. There are 4 videos made by men from the 44th and they will be together.

Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg

There are some new items on the Web relating
to the 44th Tank Battalion. It seems as though one must return to the Web every few
months.
