Hello! I'm wondering if anyone might recall serving with my father, Harry M. Gamble, Sr. A native of Chicago's South Side, he was a half-track driver with the HQ Company of the 66th Armored Infantry Battalion. I recall speaking with another 66th AIB veteran a few years ago, but I sorely regret that I did not keep his name and contact info. My name is Harry Gamble Jr. and my phone number is 773 627-2774. Thanks!

Hello Harry, I have alerted George O'Bryan,
the Unit Representative for the 66th. He
may be able to help. I also alerted Charlie
Fitts. Let me know if you need more help.
I will be travelling until next Tuesday.

Thank you so much, Mike. Mr. O'Bryan put something in the Hellcat News for me about 5 or 6 years ago, and it worked! Someone who knew my dad called me and we talked for a while, but I lost his contact info. I hope perhaps lightning might strike again. Best to you. HG

Hi Harry, I have discovered a roster
on my computer and can furnish you
contact information with several men who
might be able to help. Please
email me privately and I will email the
information to you.

Otherwise I will call you when I arrive
back home next week.

Hello Harry-
so far I have found one picture of him with a Edwin Whitley taken in Germany 1945. Didn't find original yet but it may be out with other pictures the Museum is having digitized.
Says HQ/66 A.I.B. on the picture.
Harry, Museum archivist

Whitley/ RTE 4, Wilson, NC probably old
