I am a Legacy Member of the 12th Armored Division Association and will help you with your request.
Your Dad was in company C, 66th Armored Infantry Battalion, the same unit my uncle was in.
A book, "C-66, A WORLD WAR 2 CHRONICLE OF AN ARMORED INFANTRY COMPANY" written by (Muscles) Weston Emery, also a member of the same unit, has several entries with your dad's name. The book is available by contacting Muscles at 1652 Quail Hollow Court McLean, VA 22101 703-533-0044.
Unfortunately, all the personnel records from WW2 were destroyed in a National Archives warehouse fire in 1973. But, there are several government agencies which you can write to which may have info about your dad,
Please take the time to look at this website and another we have http://12tharmoreddivision.com/. Read every thing, look at all the photos, and contact me directly, via email and I'll try to help you with more info.
