I'm looking for pictures from my grandfather.
I already studied your website with huge interest, but unfortunately I couldn't find much written about him and no pictures. Also the Hellcat News are interesting, and I saw that he started to get the Newspaper in 1977, but couldn't find an obituary from him in 1988.
My hope is, that there is someone who has a picture.
43rd Tank battalion, Company A, leader of the 2nd battalion. His name is George Wallace Clark born 1921 in Iowa, lived before WWII in Chicago, with his mother and uncle.
A Tank which got damaged in battle, from his battalion was the Chicago Rabbit Train. At the end of the war he was stationed in the area between northern Bavaria and Hessen.

Thank you for your help.

Thank you so much. I didn't know yet if it will help but the Information, that he got wounded there, is new. I just found the passage in the history books from your museum, that the tank got hit.
Thanks again. A new track.
