I'm looking to see if anyone has information or stories about my grandfather, George Conover. The information in the topic is about all I have. I was told he was a gunner in a tank, then became tank commander.

Hello Erika,

I can send you an After Action Report of the 714th Tank Battalion.
You might find some material about George Conover's experiences in the
war. The legibility is not good. The report is over 100 pages long.
However there is real history in that report.

Let me know if you are interested.

I may not get to this before Sunday.

Also, on the Museum website, read in BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCDS
(on the left side)--find NIGHTMARE IN HERRLISHEIM. Also read in the
selection under the 56th Armored Infantry Battalion:

INITIAL ASSAULT ON HERRLISHEIM BY THE 56TH AND 714TH.

Also, contact Julie McCarty who is the Unit Representative
to the Hellcat News. She can put an announcement in the
News to see if anyone remembers George.

Yours truly, Mike Woldenberg
