A friend of mine adopted the grave of William N. Park Jr. on US Cementery Margraten. William was a TEC 4 in the 771 TK BN and KIA on november 30 1944 in Germany.
We try to get as many infomation as we can about William and the Batalion he was in. When I look it up in Google, I find the 771 TK BN, but also the 771 TD BN of the 12th Armored Div. Is this the same outfit? William fought during the Battle of the Bulge in the Ardennes and after that in the Rineland Germany where he was killed. We hope that some one can give us more information. Are the other sites on the internet where we can find more info?

Best regards Richard
