Looking for anyone that may have been in a Sherman with my Pop. He was at the Bulge.
His name Antonio Portilla. He would be 93 years old this November. Guys with him could be around that age. He was 24 during his deployment.

Hello, Here are two veterans of 714-A.

John Critzas: 12thArmored@aol.com
Earl Norris: 330 494 2445

The Unit Representative will know of others (I hope).
Julie McCarty: jmccarty@gvtc.com

There is a report on the 714th for Dec. through May,
1944-45 which I will look up and
put in a different message.

Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg
