Hello, I checked old issues of the Hellcat News,
and the division scrapbooks and division
photographs. He apparently survived the war.
He was thought to be living in South Carolina.

Here is a group picture in the Hellcat News:

Please contact Bill Funke, the Unit Representative
of the 17th Armored Infantry Battalion.
fwilliam46@msn.com

For the history of the battalion, on the left side of
this page, choose: BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES. Then look for the 17th.
Read the articles by George Hatt. Also, read
the article by Carl Lyons and also Carl Helton. Read the Journal of Operations of the 17th.

I think Jack Hicklin was a replacement, perhaps he arrived after the battle of Herrlisheim, at the
end of January, 1945. This is just a guess.
