Mike, contact the unit rep of the 56th Armored Infantry Battalion to the Hellcat News. His name is Ed Pierce.
He may have known your Dad. I am not sure
what company your Dad was in. The 17,000
Man Roster has innaccurate information on
the companies of the 56th.
Also, check BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES
in the column to the left.
Click on History of the 56th Armored Infantry. Also read the history of the 56th
by John Nugent. And read the Initial Assault on Herrlisheim by the 56th AIB and
the 714th Tank Battalion. See also the Oral History Tapes from men of the 56th (left
side of screen).
