Hello,
I have in my possesion a plate, as mentioned above. Through my research I was led to a 1956 Hellcat's Newsletter announcing the upcoming 12th Annual Reunion in Pittsburg,Pa. I originally purchased it for re-sale, but, I have not been able to do that knowing the history of the plate. I have wondered if there might be family that might be interested in having it. I don't know if it is possible to find any family, but, it would be nice.
Thank you very much,
Cheryl Agnew

could you send a picture of the plate to me? He is listed on the roster of the 12th Armored Division. In the mean time will see what I can find of his family. Harry, archivist, 12TH Armored Division Museum dhali44@cs.com

Hyman Lippman died in Florida in August 2009.
I just discovered that his funeral was in Buffalo, and I should be able to find some family here. He was in Division Artillery and
in the 493rd Field Artillery. I do not know
which was first where he ended up.
