Was Joe VITANOVITZ a pilot in the 12th Armored Division, or elsewhere? There were pilots who were spotters for the
artillery. I will check. and I might not find all the rosters
on this website. The 17,000 man roster is not complete.

Hello, The 12th Armored did not have P 51 Mustangs.
He might have been used in support of the 12th ARmored
soldiers fighting on the ground.

The 12th Armored artillery had spotter planes, very small
planes that could land on pastures, etc. Did he fly in those?

If Joseph Vitanovitz did fly mustangs, perhaps you could
find the names of the squadrons that did fly these planes.

Another approach. Type into Google:

DD 214.

Fill in this form and mail it in to the address they give.
When returned, it will give your father's unit. Then you
can follow that lead.
