Looking for any info on Robert C. Claus in honor of this 100th birthday. He served in the 92nd recon armored division, I believe. Thanks

Hello, I am in a rush. Will get back to you.
According to the 17,000 man roster,
Robert C. Claus was in the 92 Reconnaissance Squadron Mechanized, Troop B (equivalent to Co. B). He apparently was also in the 56th
Armored Infantry Battalion for a time. The
Roster says HQ Co. but this could well be an
error, as almost all the names were erroneously placed in Headquarters.

In the mean time, is Robert Claus still living? Please leave an answer. I will be
tied up over the weekend.
