I am searching for information on my father, George Attaway, who was in the 495th Recon Charlie. His picture is on this site along with several other GIs who were also in Recon. Any information about the picture, including names of others in the photo, or any other information from someone who knew my father would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hello, Can you
tell me where to find the picture(s) of your
father with the other men? Perhaps we can find veterans to identify the people in the picture.
Also, you will find a " History of
the 495th" on this site. On the left side,
see BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES, and scroll
down to the 495th History.
I have tried to find George Attaway's name on the roster in this book. I must have overlooked it. I was trying to find out the identity of his Battalion. I wonder if it was Battery C. (George Attaway is listed on
the 17,000 Member Roster).
Once we find his name in his Battery, it is my theory that his name will be listed with
men that he knew in some smaller unit, equivalent to a platoon. I say this because
there are groups organized alphabetically withing each Battery (equivalent to a Company).
his name will be grouped with men

Not sure where the picture was taken.
It is of "C" Recon Section.
Men listed are: Nelson, Belisle, Attaway, Woodward, DeGenero, Sanders.
Also found a picture of Geneva in June 1987 Hellcat News.
I will keep looking for more information. Mentioned that all original members were wounded. Harry, 12th Armored Museum, Abilene
