I was researching my grandpa's history in WWII and this site was very informative. Wayne Stalcup is my grandpa and is 89 years old and doing great.

I recently came across a 1935 series one dollar silver certificate that had typing on it. On the front it says, " CO.C,778 Bn. A.P.O.403. 1st. Platoon " On the back is a list of 24 rank/names, many of which I read about on the history page on this website. If anyone has any info on this; why they did this, if it was common practice, etc., I would appreciate it.

GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THOSE WHO DEFEND HER!

I would love to hear from anyone who had a relative buried in a temporary cemetery in Grand-Failly France. The people there hold at least 3 ceremonies a year to honor our soldiers but did not have a list of the names. I was able to obtain copies of maps but they only contain the first initials, last name and serial number. I am making up a book for them with all the names and would like to be able to have more information on those who were buried there. I am doing this in honor and memory of my uncle, Oliver A. Simmers who was in the 21st Armored Infantry and was buried in Grand-Failly

I had the great pleasure to spend about 20 minutes today with John Rastelli of Clarksboro NJ in Louisville KY at what he says will be the last reunion. I was at the hotel for another conference meeting and during a break took a look at the table of printed stories and struck up a conversation with him at the registration table.

It was a honor to spend some time with him and listen to his stories.

My father-in-law served in the pacific.

To all of you and those who serve today you have my families greatest thanks.

I've recently began researching my fathers military service. He never talked much about the war when I was growing up. He passed away December 14, 1989, I was 16 at the time. I wish I had more time with him to learn more about his time in the war. I was recently able to get a copy of his discharge papers from my mother and they show that he was in the 490th Armored Field Artillery Battalion. His name was Alvin W. Lee. He was born in Manifold, PA but was residing in Washington, PA at the time he went into the service. If anyone has any information about him that would really be wonderful.

Thank you

Like others I am seeking information on my father Reinhold O. Schneider. He would never share much about his WWII expirence, except that he was in the Battle of the Bulge and had his feet frozen for 3 months, that he was in the Thunderbolts, and that he had bee shot in the knee.
Daddy passed away in 1970 when I was only 16 so I never really took much interest in his past, with regards to his military service.
Now, I would like to know as much as possible about his war expirence. If anyone can pass along information I'd so appreciate it.
My dad was from Fon du Lac, WI.
Thank you so much
Vickie Johnson

Christine Lusher Tuesday, July 27, 2010 13:25
Vickie,

I hope you are able to find some information about your father. I was reading your post and I felt like I was reading a carbon copy of my life. My father was in the war like your dad and I was 16 when he passed away. Like you, at that age I didn't take much interest either but now I'm trying to find out as much as I can.

I wish you all the luck and hope someone can help you.

Hi,
Does anyone have copies of any ship newspapers(i.e. Scuttlebut)for the Hermitage during its trip overseas (
September 29, 1944- October 10th, 1944)? Since my grandfather,
Charles J. Hocker (Company B, 21st AIB) sailed on the Hermitage, I would like to read some ship news that he may have read while on board.

Thank You
Robert Clemens

This is what is written on my Dad's Citation:

Private SAUL J. Disler, 313367507. Medical Detachment, 63rd Armored Infantry Battalion, 11th Armored Division, United States Army. For gallantry in action near Remagne, Belgium, in connection with military operations against an armed enemy of the United States. On 30 December 1944, while Company B 63rd Armored Infantry Battalion, to which he was attached, was advancing toward Remagne, Belgium, Private Disler observed that two tanks to his right front had been hit by enemy shell fire and were burning. With utter disregard of personal safety and with unflinching courage, he immediately moved through intense artillery fire toward the blazing tanks. Upon reaching them, he evacuated two members of the tank crews, rendered first aid and assisted the wounded men to the aid station. The disregard of personal safety and loyal devotion to duty displayed by Private Disler was in accordance with the highest traditions of the United States Army. Private Disler entered the military service from Massachusetts.

Does anyone know who the men were that he evacuated from that tank? He is still around and telling WW2 stories. He doesn't see well enough to be on the computer but would love to speak to these men

I was wondering if anyone remembers him if not ok but if anyone does I would love to know more about him since he does not talk much about the war. I consider him and everyone who fought and gave their life my Heroes. So, any info would be greatly appreciated. His name is Rafael DeLaGarza.

(504) Hello all,

My Father, Herbert M Aumann was part of the 11th Armored Division.

He passed away in October 2006. We have found among his belongings a Bronze Star, which he never spoke of. I've also recently read a book he had, I believe it came from a reunion, that says my Father was recommended to receive a "Croix de Guerre". Whether he actually received this I do not know.

My Father rarely spoke of his time at war. I am sad to be finding out of his bravery after he has passed, but I am so very proud of him.

If anyone remembers my Father, would you please contact me.

Thank you so much,
Donna Aumann Cooper

My heartfelt thanks to the 11th vets and their family members who were on a trip to Germany and Europe just recently, and held a commemoration service in the town of Tittling in honor of my father, PFC. James M. Bishop. My Dad was a rifleman in the 1st platoon, Co. A, 21 AIB, 11th AD. He died of wounds April 24, 1945 when he was shot off a vehicle and then run over by another vehicle, prob. a tank. He was buried in the yard of a home just outside the town, later disinterred and buried in the Nuremberg Cemetery.

The former mayor of Tittling, Hr, Herbert Zauhar, has been very helpful in my research of my Dad's death.

May God continue to bless all the vets of WW II, and especially those of the 11th AD.

(497) To all the stalwart Soldiers of the 11th Armored Division, and all those who love them, wherever you may be today:
Heartfelt congratulations and deep thanks from those who wore the uniform after you -- on this 65th Anniversary of your Liberation of the death camp at Mauthausen!
As we approach the anniversary of VE Day, hold your heads high. You will never be forgotten. You good and valiant men have written your names indelibly in the eternal history of free men!
You left your homes and loved ones and traveled across the wide ocean -- and struggled and fought, successfully, to liberate a continent.
May the Good Lord bless and keep each of you for all time.

I am looking for anyone who has info, served with or knew Daniel Savage. He served in the 11th and fought at the Battle of the Bulge. He was my step-father in law and recently passed away. He never spoke of his time in the service and left me a poster of the 11th Armored Divisions Campaigns of World War 2.

I hope to hear from someone!
Many thanks and God Bless our WW2 Veterans.

On 8 May, 65th anniversary of the first link-up with the Russian Army by the U.S. Third Army.

When the 11th Armored arrived at the Demarcation line along the Inn River, the 41st Cav was sent to make contact with the Russians. It was needed some coordination between Armies to avoid friendly fire. On 8 May 1945 the 41st arrived at Amstetten among columns of retreating Germans. Some Russian planes dropped bombs in the town and Germans and Americans had to run for cover. Then, the first Russians arrived and the historical meeting took place. While the Allies celebrate the link-up some of the biggest German panzers went through Anstetten and run towards Strengberg trying to escape from the Soviet Army. The meeting was filmed, but the following day. The soldiers had to repeat the link-up until it looked nice to the cameraman.

I would like to gather all the information related to the meeting, competition with other units to be the first, relations with the Russians or the mood in those days. If anyone is interested I will send him what I have found until now.

Regards, Jabier

Hello everyone!

I have used the website to investigate as much as possible, but have been unable to dig up personal accounts. If anyone has more information about him please let me know!! Thanks again to all those vets out there who have given so much for our country.

I've been trying to find any information about my grandfather Staff Sgt. John ("Johnny") F. Moore, HDQS Co. 55th AIB, 11th Armored Division. I really have very little to go on because he never discussed his time during WWII, but I have made copies of all surviving documents that my grandmother has. Luckily, I found this great website! And wouldn't you know it, the first article I printed out was Myron Nosanov's account of the war and he mentions "Sergeant Johnny Moore" several times. I'm SOOOO thankful for Mr. Nosanov and for him sharing his story. If anyone has any more information about my grandfather Johnny Moore, stories, photos, etc. Please let me know.

Even if it's the most minute information, please contact me. I would love to have some contact with anyone from Papaw's time.

My email: eric.a.moore@gmail.com OR heyeazy@me.com

Again, on behalf of my grandmother Ovilee, the rest of my family and myself, thank you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

Gentlemen:

I own several group photographs that used to belong to the late Mr. Anson "Red" W. Bennett, serial number 35510245, who served with the 11th Armoured Division. Specifically, one of the images was taken during World War Two and is captioned, "Hq. Co. CCA 11TH ARMOURED DIVISION at Camp Cooke, California". Before Mr. Bennett's death, he was able to identify most of the men in the photograph. I would like to find out more about these photographs. Also, I would like to know how I might be able to contribute the photographs to your association. Any assistance you can give to me will be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!

Sincerely,

Harry W. Heller

Hello,

I was on the 11th Armored Divisions website, scrolling through the messages. My name is Tera Major and my grandfather is Marvin Estes. He served in the 41st Cavalry Division Reconnaissance Squadron, during WW2; (troop A).

The reason I am contacting you is because I started to write his memoirs of the war for my College Senior Thesis Project. Him and I are still working on the memoirs ( I am very lucky to still have him :) and he mentioned your father. He called him Carl Carlson. He said that he fit the mold of a typical "Swede" (which is funny because my grandpa married a "Swede" :) and he said that he was a Radio-Man Extraordinaire. He said that he had a great sense of humor and he was a great and loyal companion who was well-liked by all; especially him :)

If you are interested in is memoir, I will email you a PDF copy, we are still in the bare bones of it but it is coming along. 41 pages so far and counting. I hope this helps you.

Thanks,

My father was Cpl. Refugio "Hinojos" Ray Cervantes and toward the end of his service was Tech. Sgt. Ray Cervantes.

I've always been proud of his service to our country and to see this web-site with all of the 11th Armored Division History makes me even prouder for all of you who served. If anyone remembers my dad I would enjoy hearing any stories you might be willing to share. My mother is still alive but we lost dad April 10, 2003 and I miss him every day. I wish he would have been able to see this web-site and share memories with me. I do remember him telling me the story of "Rechrival, Belgium".

Thank you,

Mario Cervantes

Regarding the Koehler 63rd Armored Infantry Battalion photos. My father S/Sgt. Thomas McNally C. Co / 63rd AIB was also good friends with S/Sgt. Frank Erbio KIA 1.13.45. I also have photos of Sgt. Erbio's gravesite having visited there in 2005. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with anyone with any additional photos or information pertaining to C Company 63rd AIB of the 11th AD.

Hello Robert,
your father served our country with my father, Roger
Keller.
Dad never spoke about what he and your father endured. I only know that men died under the responsibility of Lt. Roger Keller, my father. Perhaps that is why he never spoke about the war.
Dad is doing as best he can; at 88 years old.
I hope we can connect soon.

We were just going thru some of my mother's old scrapbooks. I came across some of my father's paperwork from when he was in the Army, his promotion orders dated 23 Apr 1943 and signed by Thomas N. Stark Colonel 41st Armored Regiment. My father, Harold W. Logan, is deceased now, but his great-grandson just joined the Army. This makes the fourth generation to serve this country.

I am searching for William P. Butler (ASN 35449427), member of Co. B, 21 st Arm. Bn.. He was at the Battle of the Bulge. Probably he was seriously wounded as his place of separation was Thayer General Hospital (Nashville, Tennessee). He enlisted in 1942 in Huntington, West Virginia.
Looking forward to hearing from anyone who can provide details on him/his next of kin.
Thanks in advance,
Best regards,

(466) To Whom It May Concern,

I am trying to find out some information on my late uncle, Cpl Thomas Benjamin Snow, who was from Lima Ohio. I found a photo of him wearing the 11th patch on his right sleeve in two photos and I know tha he was an infantryman.

My uncle was murdered in 1957 so I never knew him and I am trying to find someone he served with to learn more about him. His discahrge reflects his later service with the Office of Military Government in Berlin from late 1945 - 1946.

He is credited with the Rhineland Campaign and the award of the CIB, but that is about as much as I know. I am attaching a photo taken of him after the war when he was in the reserves in the hopes someone might recognize him. I would be grateful for any help.

Sincerely,

Robert B. Snow

If anyone knew my father please contact me as he like many did not discuss the war and I would like to learn about what happened to my dad. He died in 1970 from a farming accident in Wisconsin.

If you have any pictures of him, I would be very grateful! Thank you!

(444) This guy 's name is David W. Houston, Jr.
He was living in Aberdeen, Mississippi.
During the war he was in an Armored Division but we don't know what division ?
After Christmas 1944, he was billeted for 2 to 3 days in the Mernier Family at Bernimont, a tiny village close to Neufch?teau, Belgium.
Do you maybe know him and do you know what was his former unit ?

I discovered this site through my Great Uncle who found out I was interested in history, especially concerning WWII. My Step Great Grandfather, Grandpa Albert, aka Albert Foret, served in the 11th Armored Division, and though I did have the chance to meet him, I was very little and don't really remember him. I never really got the chance to talk to him about his time in the service and would love to find out more about him. If anyone can maybe offer me any stories or tidbits about him or of his travels during his time in the 11th, I would be very thankful!Thanks and God bless!

I am trying to find out if there is anyone still alive who can share any stories about my father pfc Gail Nelson Blakely-he was a member of the 575th and told very little to his wife Esther, ,or any of his seven children.

I have tried for years to find a site that has free access, I just am curious if someone could tell me anything??

Here is what we know:
he was a gunner repair man on a half track
he freed prisoners at a concentration camp
he was 18 when he entered the war

from all we hear he knew how to make danishes???

he was married for 34 years, and most of his battalion mates are from Ohio.

Thomas Camby from Ohio was one of his closest friends from the war.

he died in 1986 and he is my greatest hero because of his military service.
He had me when he was 47 years old and he would be 85 in September if he was still living.
the picture is of me, my sister, Lori Gayle, and my wife-whom he never met.

Any antedotal stories or battle stories from anyone would be greatly appreciated

I just discovered this site as a result of an organization in Philadelphia for WWII Vets. I guess I am doing the same as a lot of folks I see in trying to locate anyone that may have known my Dad during the time he served with the 11th Armored Division. He passed away in 96, but I have been getting more involved in all of the things that he just could never speak of as a 19 year old in combat. His name is Willard T. Barrowman. Anyone that recalls him please feel free to e-mail me!

My Great Uncle Robley C. Reher served in the 11th armored in WWII. I know he met with his fellow comrades before he passed away in 2001. I was wondering if any still meet in the Chino, CA area. If so i would love to meet them. I currently working on my masters and plan on teaching history. I would love to talk with those who served so that one day i may convey to my students the importance of the greatest generation. Any help or direction would be so very appreciated.

I've recently begun researching the military service of my great uncle and I'm trying to locate anyone that may have known him.

His name is SSGT Elmer R. Miller from Wisconsin. He was a Tank Commander in the 22nd Tank Battalion, 11th Armored Division. Elmer was KIA on January 5, 1945 during the Battle of the Bulge. He is buried in the Luxembourg American Cemetery.

I would be extremely grateful for any information.

My father Art "Jake" Axmear of Cedar Rapids, IA served in the 11th Armoured Division. I believe he drove a truck and played tenor sax in the company band. He passed away in '04 and we miss him dearly. Other than expressing fondness for his old friends & comrades he never spoke of the war. Our family would love to hear from anyone who knew him.

HR 1818 is a bill To amend title 10, United States Code, to extend military commissary and exchange store privileges to veterans with a compensable service-connected disability and to their dependents. Currently it has been referred to the House Armed Services Committee, Subcommittee on Military Personnel. I urge everyone to contact their U.S. Congressional Representative to show support for this benefit for our vets. Don't let this bill die in committee.

My dad, Robert A. Vogel, was in Battery A of the 491st Armored Field Artillery Battalion. He never talked much about his experiences in the war, but reading the history of the 491st just now was very interesting. He died in 1998.

My grandfather, Frank Logozzo, was with the 11th at the Battle of the Bulge. He passed away 2 weeks ago and now we are all kicking ourselves for not writing down any of his stories. As I struggle with this loss, I have also come to realize that his passing signifies the end of an era, not only for me but for our country. Men of his generation are a different breed aqnd I know that if the generations of today had half the pride and work ethic he had, we may not be facing such hard time now. To all of you who are left from this era, I truly thank you and appreciate all you have sacrificed. I wish I had told my grandfather that.

My Father, Don Becker from St. Helena, NE was a member of the 55th AIB. Mt Father never talked about the war much at all and since his passing in 2006 I have been trying to piece together his time in Europe from early 44 to the end of the war. I would appreciate any information you have.

My Uncle, Walter Trought served with the 11th Armored during the Battle of the Bulge. I do not know what unit he belonged to because he never spoke of the war. If anyone knew him I would appreciate any information you could give me about his unit, what the unit did, and any stories you might remember. My Uncle died quite a few years ago and anything you could give would fill in some of the gaps.

I am currently doing some research on my grandfather, Elliott E. Lanier (Earl)Georgia, PFC, 778th Tank battallion, 11th Armored Division, Company D. I have a lot of pictures of his time during the war. I have pictures of him and friends at the 11th Batallion Recreation Hall, loading the U.S.S. Clairmont, in Czechlosvkia and Austria. I have just began my intensive research and would appreciate any help or assistance. My grandfather never felt like a hero, he always said that those men who died during the war were the real heroes, so I guess that is why he never felt like telling stories about his time in the war. I have a picture in which he wrote down some of the men's names. The men in the picture are as follows:

T4- McJay(Iowa)
Sgt. Van De Hey ? (Wis)
Sgt. Nass (Ill)?
T5 Cook (N.J.)
PFC Brewer (N.Y)
PFC Sitter(Mich)
T5 Buchs (Wis)
PFC Blackwell(ILL)
PFC Wilbur (Mass)
T4 Musitano (Pa)
T4 Timmian (Minn)
Harold Moen (Iowa)
Louis Spanish? (N.Y.)
Seraphain Fidow? (N.Y)
Feel free to contact me via email with any information on these men or my grandfather. Thanks
