Looking for some information on PFC Eugene Grillo, Jr. He was my great-uncle and was KIA on April 15, 1945. 714th Tank Bn.

I will work on this. But I have a question: Was Eugene
related to Julio Grillo of the 56th Armored Infantry
Battalion?

Hello again, I have checked the Hellcat News and
Eugene Grillo's name is mentioned in several issues as one of the men killed in action. No other information is given.
I suggest you contact the unit representative to the
Hellcat News: Julie McCarty,

jmccarty@gvtc.com

Ask her to place a query for anyone who might remember
Eugene Grillo. Also, check the Oral History videos
in the left column on this page. I can send you a 200
page report on the 714th Tank Battalion (poorly typed).

Yours truly,

Mike Woldenberg (my email is above.

According to some family letters we recently found, it appears that Eugene was killed by a German sniper on April 15, 1945.
