Hello all,
My dad Walter Sitek was with 66th AIB and was captured on Jan. 16, 1945.

I'm looking for anyone who knew him. He never talked much about his time in the war and he died in the late 80s.

Thanks.

Alan Sitek

I just wanted to respond that my father was in 119th AEB, was captured the next day,1-17-45 my father didnt talk about it much either. He did say he almost starved to death,and a fellow pow died after eating bread too fast after being without food for 3 wks. He was released on april 18 of 45.

Hi Alan,

I forwarded your question to Geo O'Bryan and Charlie Fitts. Both from C66 and POW's.

Geo said he knew your dad and will contact you
Regards,

Ken 2nd Gen

I did notice that Walter Sitek is mentioned several times in my father's book C-66: A WWII Chronicle of an Armored Infantry Company , of which he was a member. The book is temporarily not listed on this site, but you can either go to Amazon.com or write him at EMERYwebrg@aol.com. He also has a web site at www.c-66.com. I hope this helps. Eric Emery

I also was in the 66AIB and was captured on January 16th at Stienwald, but sorry I don't remember your father. We went to Stalag 5B then to Stalag 5B, then to 11B You should look at Prisoner of War book for more information.
There will be pictures of the 280 POW's form German records posted on this web site in the near future.

Hello,

I am trying to research my Grandfather and all I knwo is that he was in the 66th Arm Inf Bat, which I actually just found on this website. My Grandfather has early stages of Dementia and doesn't talk about the war. I saw your post and thought I would see if you found anything out? And if you have any advice for me? Thank you for you post and the subsequent replys.

I have lost my password and username. My email is danielj618@gmail.com
I was emailed regarding this book. My Dads name is Frank C Smith. I was told he was mentioned in the book

He passed in 2003

I would love to hear from anyone or talk to anyone who knew him or at least find out how to get a copy of, or read the book
