Hello everyone,
I am looking for anyone that might recall Ashley Thompson of A Company 17th AIB. He was KIA in Herrlissheim January 1945.

read your post in TAPS. The 12th wasn't in the Battle of the Bulge. Herrlisheim was a big battle. You can read stories in Books and Written Experiences and also view the 17th in the 2713 Division Photos. I have read the history but no mention of him by name as yet.
William Funke is Unit Rep and you might email him. fwilliam46@msn.com

Ashley Thompson, Paul Strate and Alfred Rosenthal were all in A-17th Armored Infantry
Battalion. Bill Funke can put a notice in
the Hellcat News. (Probably the October issue). I checked for Strate and Rosenthal
and they are not on the current list of recipients for the Hellcat News.
