I know he was in the 12th Armored Division. He was in an Engineer company? I think he spoke of the corps of Engineers? At one time he was a driver for a Lt. Meuller(spelling?) He also said he fought in the battle of the bulge. I remember he said he sat in a foxhole for 30 days without a change of clothes.
He passed in 1985 and I would love to find some information about where he may have been. I remember him speaking of England and France.

Thanks,

Ken

Hi Jerry,

I am a Legacy Member of the 12th Armored Division Association and I will try to help you. Was J. T. from OK when he went into the Army? Was he born in 1922?

Regards

Ken

Ken,

He was from Princeton,Texas. He was born in 1918. He had a brother named Vernon that served as well.

Thanks for your help. I'll keep searching for more info myself. I only know what my grandmother can remember and she has forgotten most of what he told her. I was only 14 years old when he passed and he wouldn't talk much about the war. I remember him talking about Alsace. I believe he was there during the Battle of the Bulge?

take care,
Jerry
