Hello, Lester Healy was in Co. C of the 43rd Tank Battalion.
He was killed in action. I will look for people who may
have known him. This may take time as I will consult with
the Unit Representative to the Hellcat News.

Hello, It would make things easier if you
could contact the Unit Representative to
the Hellcat News. (You have not left your
email here and I respect the fact that you
want to keep your email address off this website).

Contact:

Jackie Petersen Schadock
jip-sch@optonline.net


Please tell her that Lester Healy was Killed in Action and was from Co. C- 43rd.

Also, you can read a History of the 43rd
in the section: BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES (to the left). Look in the chapter on Company C.

Also, click on Oral History Videos. Click on
Battalion at the top of a column to sort all
the battalions. Go to roughly page 7 ?? to
find the 43rd. Thre are two interviews from
Company C.

There are many other interviews from the
43rd.

Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg

hello-
most of the ones that knew him will have passed on. James Stone said he was his buddy. HCN 1 SEPT 91
Bob McGUIRE(DECEASED)saw best friend Lester killed. 1/17/45 at Herrlisheim.
He bought a gold star paver for him to be placed in 12th Armored Division Museum
Check oral histories to see if either has one.
