I can't help you directly but its possible my uncle John Gilson served with your relative. He was assigned to HQ Company 56AIB. I am glad to share any info I find with you.

My grandfather was also in the 56th AIB HQ, he is still alive and well but will not share his experiences. His name is Roy R. Strange from Benton, Arkansas. I do know that he was shot in the head before crossing the Rhine river while he was driving a half track. If anyone knew him or can elaborate on the experiences shared with him could you please contact me. Thank you in advance.

My father, Albert P. Rivette, also served in Headquartrs company, 56th Armd Inf. He was the motor sergeant for the battalion.

Would be very interested in trading what information we have - maybe we can both learn something new.
