My father was John H. Russell. He served in the 11th AD, 55th infantry. Would appreciate hearing from anyone who may have known him. Like so many others I read of on here, he never talked about the war.

Hello,
My grandfather Leo Guerrettaz just past away this week. Before he passed he told me some stories from the war. He was a tank gunner, I have papers from where he was promoted to corporal in the 55 armored infantry battalion. I think he was promoted again but I am not sure. I have a picture of him and some others with their tank. I would like to know if he received any awards or medals during his service, he didn't like talking about the war much. I am trying to gather information on his military service to make a small memorial for him. I have been able to find a picture on here that was also in a book that he knew the men in the picture. If anyone has heard their fathers or grandfathers talk of my grandfather I would like to hear from you.

My father, Sgt. Ralph Edwin Snowberger, past away Aug. 2006. Before he died, he told me of a son he had in 1948,named Joseph Edwin Snowberger. Joseph would be 59 or 60 yrs. old, and he was born in North Rhine-Westphalia area. Does anyone have suggestions on how I could locate him??? Just trying to put my heart and mind to ease!

Sincerely, Ron Snowberger

Although I apoligize for the delay I regret to anounce the passing of my father Joseph Fiteni (D 22nd Tank)in July of 2007. At a very early age dad made it clear the importance that his role in the 11th and in the battles that they faced had a profound effect on him.
He and mom always looked forward to reunions when they were able to travel! On behalf of the family thank you for keeping this part of the "greatest generation alive"

My dad was one of those great boy/men who served in Europe during WWII. He was stationed in Iceland building and maintaining airfields then went to France. He has never talked about it much until now and he is confused about dates and which units he was with. He has mentioned the 56th Engineers Company C 2nd Platoon. Also the 475th Engineers and the 17th Ground Force Replacement Center. He says he shipped out of New York on Dec 23rd 1941 and left for home in March of 1944. His name was Perry Brown. Can anyone help with more information. I would love to be able to share this with siblings and grandkids.
Thanks to all who did serve or are serving today. So far I have a son-in-law and a grandson proudly serving their country.

I was born in Mauthausen on 29 April 1945. My mother, Anna Bergman, says that '100s' of photos. were taken of us by US soldiers but we have never found any. We would be most grateful to hear of the existence of any mother and baby photos. Our story features in the Thunderbolt.

We were recently given many of my father-in-laws medals and shoulder sleeve insignias. I am earnestly attempting to identify and chronicle his efforts for our family. Does any one have good online info about how to identify odd medals and patches. I've been to the army recruiters and have perused many "medal sites", but I still have several that remain mystery medals/patches.

I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction. I'm looking for all the information on my grandfather's military history as possible. I do know that he was a corporal in the 11th armored division 3rd army. I know he was in Patton's 3rd army throughout the whole duration of that war. I know his enlist and discharge dates but this is as far as it goes. I wish I could of gotten this information from him before he died in 2004. However like many veterans of WWII he didn't like to talk about it. Any help in this matter would greatly be appreciated. His name was Harold E. Fangmeier, he either enlisted in Mason Co. IL or Peoria, IL.

My Father was Matthew Ostrowski. He was an MP in the 11th Armored Division and was at the battle of the Bulge. I find myself looking at this website today on Feb 20, 2008. Tomorrow Feb. 21 will be the first anniversary of my Dear Dad's Death. He lived to be 95. When he was younger he didn't talk much about the War but as he got older he talked about it daily.
Dad was a great man. He was a Buffalo Policeman and retired as a Captain. I am now a Lieutenant in the Buffalo Police department.My Dad always said that it took his daughter to follow in his footsteps. My brothers chose other occupations.
I must say that my Father and also my Mother are surely members of the Greatest Generation. They grew up during the depression and were both very poor. They worked hard and were decent honorable people who taught their children to be the same and taught by example.
I know that my parents are only 2 of those people and that you genltemen are also of that generation. I would like to thank all of you for everything you have done to make this world that you have passed down to your children such a phenomenal place.
I have had the opportunity to travel to Eurpoe several times and each time I come home I realize just what a great country America is. I know that I have you men, many of whom were young boys when you fought for our counrty, to thank.
From the bottom of the heart of a daughter of a Soldier in the 11th Armored Division.......THANKYOU !

(346) I have been going through paperwork from my grandfather?s service in Bravo (B) Battery, 491st Armored Field Artillery Battalion during WWII, in the attempt to produce a booklet for my Grandmother, Mother and Sister to have as mementos, as my Grandfather passed away in 1989. I have very little information on his service (since he refused to talk openly about it, which for obvious resaons, is the case with all older veterns. His name was William "Bill" E. Coplin, and at the time of his discharged he was the rank of TEC 4. He entered into active service on 6 Nov 42, and 14 Nov 1945 was his separation date from Carson Colorado Hospital Center. I have his medals which include the Good Conduct Ribbon, WWII Victory Ribbon, EAME Ribbon w/ 3 Bronze Service Stars, Purple Heart w/ 2 Stars and the ATCM (?). I know it?s pretty improbable, but if there are any other photos,information, or possibly someone who served with him...I would greatly appreciate any information.

My grandfather,PFC Charles F. Fletcher, who passed away before I was one, served with C 63rd AIB. It is my understanding that on Apr. 9th 1945 he was near Wiedersbach, Germany looking for his brother, Malcolm (unk which unit). He was in front of our lines and was shot and captured by German forces (possibly SS). He was eventually rescued and was sent home. Anyone who knew him or has additional information please write me. I am in the Army and look upon all vets with honor. God Bless you all.

I have the group picture from my father of Company D, 63rd Bn, Camp Barkeley, Texas circa June(?) 1943 if anyone is interested in finding a loved one in the photo, I will e-mail copy to you. I would also like to hear from anyone out there that would have any memories of my Dad. His name was C.B.Barbary from Greer, SC. He often went by the nickname "Bob" because he had only intials as his name. I know that he was in the Medical Replacement Training Center at Barkeley from about June 1943 until Overseas deployment in Sept 1944 (?). He was for sure at Southampton, England in 1944 and I believe went on to Cherbourg, France.

Hi my Grandfather served with company B of the 811th TD Batt. First and foremost God Bless Veterans! My Grandfather Raymond Oscar Hofmann. or Bill was with a 11th Armored Division. I know he trained in Fort Hood Texas. I know he was on the second wave at Omaha beach, also fought in the Battle of the Bulge, and the Seigfreid Line. He also went through St.Lo, where I believe his tank was hit when he was not in it.(Possibly his commanders life was taken here) Pictures from a book called "THINK".

Anyone having information feel free to contact me ''PLEASE'' and thanks!

Is there anyway I can find out the Company he was assigned with, any citations he may have recieved. Any information would be appreciated. Thank You

My father told me that he was assigned to Company B. That's all the information that we have. Your uncle was a genuinely fine man. The company commander, Captain George Reimer, was a close friend of Lt. Dunn.

As he was the typical soldier who kept his war experiences to himself, his daughter (my wife Allison) would love some info on this early part of his life. He passed in early 2005 at the age of 79. Please drop a line if you can help me out....

My dad,Arthur Loyd Shipley was a tank driver in HQ company of the 753rd tank battalion during WWII. Dad was from Oklahoma, and the guys called him "pop" as he was 28 years old when they shipped out to North Africa and most of the guys were 19 or 20. Dad died in a tractor accident back in 1980. I am trying to either locate someone who might have known him in service or maybe someone from the 753rd who authored a book about their service. Any information would be appreciated. Please email anything you would consider of interest. Thanks for your time. Curtis Shipley

I was wondering if anyone here can help me with some research. I write children?s books, and I am beginning a historical fiction book on the liberators and survivors of Mathausen. My premise is an American soldier befriending a young man from the camp after liberation. Of course, it is fictional, but I need some background to write this. I will be interviewing people, but I was hoping someone here could suggest specific sites to go to or specific people to interview. I?m mainly looking to see what the protocol after the war was. Where did the survivors go? Was there anything done for the young ones?
I grew up hearing stories of the Eleventh Armored Division from my father, Eli Warach of the 42nd Tank Battalion; Company D. He happened to be president of your group at the time of his death in 2001. I still have copies of the beautiful tributes many of you had written. I have written essays having to do with the Battle of the Bulge and the subsequent liberation of Mathausen based on his and others? remarks, but since I mainly write for children, I am now working on this upper elementary picture book.
Any suggestions to help with research would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I believe my father-in-law; Charley Sylvis served in the 11th. He was older, 36, when he served. He has passed away and I would like to know if anyone remembers him. He was from Blair, NE and said he delivered mail while in Europe.

Thanks

My father was rescued as a forced labourer nearby MAINLEUS in Germany when he and his comrades where forced to walk to the Czhech border. I wonder if any of you soldiers who were in combat in that area can still recall of this event. Any information is wellcome

To anyone in the 11th AD/CCR/55th AIB/Co. A-

I happened to read Wm. Fee's diary about his experiences through Europe during WWII, and saw mention of my father, ANGELO MAGELLI- at least, I assume it was my father. I know he was in the 11th AD, and I don't think there were too many Angelo Magelli's. In the diary, he has the nickname "Doc", which I had never heard before. My mother says he was a medic, but, how did he then end up as 1st. Sgt. of an infantry company? Unfortunately, the diary ends before the date when my father was wounded and finished with the war. Does anyone know how to contact Mr. Fee or have any additional information about my Dad so I might fill in some blanks about his life? My dad died several years ago, so I can get no stories from him.

If you get notice of this comment, please contact me. My name is Roger Schulman and it's quite possible your father knew my father, Cpl. Hyman I Schulman of Company A, 55th AIB. I am writing a book about my parents' wartime correspondence and would appreciate hearing from you. You may contact me at ohrogerchester@gmail.com.

I'm looking for information about my grandfather's time in Company A of the 56th Armored Infantry Div. Rhineland and Central Europe. At Fame Theatre he was wounded. And he told a story of using wench trucks to lift all equipment and vehicles out of a dead end canyon. He was a Auto Mechanic 014 combat infantryman and we know he entered the service in Tulsa, OK in 1942. His name was P.J. Robinson.

If anyone knows anything about his division or knew him, please contact me at nscheffler[at]gmail.com

I am an author of a book on a Spanish survivor of the Mauthausen death camp. In interviews, the survivor describes being assigned to a work detail outside Mauthausen when he met approaching U.S. forces, most likely the 26th Infantry and/or 11th Armored Divisions. He speaks at length about a deep friendship he developed with an Army official named Ramon Navarro (Novarro/Nobarro/Nabarro?), who assisted as an interpreter when the survivor was debriefed outside of the Mauthausen prior to the assault on the town and camp.

I would be very much interested in getting in touch with this soldier, if he is living. The only information I have about this officer is that he was among the U.S. forces to liberate Mauthausen, and was Hispanic, fluent in Spanish. The survivor believed he was adorned with 4 stripes, but this may be inaccurate.

If Ramon could be identified and located, I would be willing to fly the survivor up from Bolivia at my own expense to reunite captive and liberator, possibly for your next reunion.

I would be extremely grateful for your help.

Have just found this site. Should have done this years ago. My dad, George Pawlo of Jersey City, NJ served in Company B, 42nd Battalion. He passed away in 1963. He was a SGT and received a purple heart. He never said much about his service time. Would like to have information on how to find service details and/or if photos exist. Cannot find him in any photos on this site. I saw March 2007 posting about full company picture ?? is this available yet ?? Thanks to all in advance

My dad, Walter White from Boston, Mass. served in C Co., 63rd AIB, 11th AD from Fall 1944 to VE Day. Prior to that he was with the AAF in England driving trucks and loading planes. Would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who served with him. He passed away in 1968 so we know little of his war experience, other than what we have gleaned from letters he wrote home to our Grandmother from. I'm at wcw188@aol.com. Eternally grateful for your service and our freedom.

My late father, Marvin Krumholz of Newark, NJ, was in the 11th Armored Division. I just watched the Ken Burns' documentary "The War" and heard the remarks of former division member Burnett Miller of Sacramento. Many of the recollections of Mr. Miller were familiar as my father used to tell me and my brothers about his time in the Army and The Battle of the Bulge. I would be very happy to hear from anyone who knew my Dad. My email address is mfkrumholz@yahoo.com.

My father Clarence Deutsch fought in the Battle of the Bulge. He recently passed away. I wish we would have known about this website before. Over the years he told good and bad stories of the times in war. I think, but am not sure, that he was in the 41st Calvary Recon. He was very close to his grandchildren and we would like as much information as possible about anyone who knew him during the war. I was substitute teaching in a 3rd grade class and they were reading the book "The Flag with Fifty-Six Stars" and I was blessed to hear the 11th Armored Division. The book is incredible. I cried as we finished reading it. Any information would be great!!

He was in the 11th AD, 22nd Tank Battalion, B Company. If anyone knows, or has heard of my grandfather, please contact me. I never knew him, he passed away in 1955 when my mother was 7.

(307) My Dad, Bob Kinsley, of Belleville, NJ, served in the 11th Armor, 42nd Tank Division, Company B, during WWII.

I would love to have more pictures. Sadly, a lot of his WWII books that he gave me were ruined in storage. I remember looking at them all the time when I was young. Any photos would be greatly appreciated. I saw his picture posted with Leo Zamparelli on your members photos section of your website.

Dad was very proud of the division that he served in and so are we! Dad passed away on August 22, 1995 after a long illness.

I would love to hear from other people or their families that served with my Dad. My Mom, Charlotte Kinsley, is still alive and lives out here in Arkansas by me. Thanks. I will be looking for emails!

Last years was held in Paducah, KY. This year's reunion will be held at Kenlake State Resort Park in Kentucky (Land Between the Lakes). These reunions are held over the Labor Day weekend every year.

My father passed away in 1982 and never was detailed about his time in WWII. What I do remember is that he served as a tank driver in Europe and talked about the liberation of France. There are no records to search through so I do not know his company, etc. If anyone has any memory of him I would love to hear what you have. His name was Stanley Blanco and he was Filipino.

My grandfather, Vincent K. Cutshall, passed away on March 14, 2007. I would love to hear from anyone who knew him. He served with the 11th Armored Division, 491st AFA, Battery C. On December 30th, 1944, he was injured by a shell fragment and later received the purple heart. He recovered in England before rejoining the 491st. One of the things I found after his death were his letters home during the war. My grandpa rarely spoke of the War and the letters have given me a fascinating insight into this part of his life. If anyone remembers him, I would love to hear from you. Thank you.

I made my first entry in your guestbook on June 5th, 2005 (#146) to thank you for some photos I used to illustrate the end of WW II in a local exhibition.
Up to the present day, this entry has lead to a very personal contact with two former G.I.s, one of them being a veteran of 11th AD. Mr. Kenneth Reuss of 492nd Armored Field Artillery Battalion had been in this area on his battlefield tour in May 2005, had drawn the sharp conclusion that my home town Sinzig was situated between Bad Breisig (whre they had slept in a hotel) and Remagen (where they had visited the remainders of Ludendorff Bridge). He wrote me an email, and this turned into a very delightful and personal contact by email and sometimes by phone which lasted for almost two years.
I am very sad that my friend Kenneth Reuss passed away on Sunday, April 29th, 2007.
Since I don't have personal contact to any living person of 11th AD by now, I am proud to offer my advice and help as a local resident to any member of your division - as far as information about the Rhineland, Rhineland-Palatinate or Germany is required.
My last gift to Ken Reuss was an assembly of photos, the first half of them taken in March 1945 when 11th AD reached the town of Andernach where I work. I spotted the places and took photos of the same scenes 62 years later, in March 2007. These photos are available to anyone interested. Please email me.

Yours
Sven-Erich Czernik

I would like to know if any veteran of the 63rd AIB remembers my father Seymour Spears. I know that he served on a halftrack and was wounded during the final stages of the Battle of the Ardennes, in Belgium. And he was honorably discharged as a private. Sy did not speak too much of his experiences, and as he passed away 12 June 2006, his stories went with him. I am a history buff of this period and am very proud of him and what every GI did in WWII. I would appreciate any information anyone has. Thank you

I have a question with regard to my grandfathers medals and ribbons. He served as a bow gunner in Co B, 42nd tank battalion, 11th AD. His European Campaign ribbon has 3 bronze stars mounted on it - is there any way for me to find out what they represent? Thanks

I can?t thank the men and women of WWII Enough. Ever since I attended the National WWII Memorial dedication in 2004, and met so many WWII veterans, I have been collecting stories from WWII veterans. During this time I have also made a video in honor of all who served during WWII. The video showcases different WWII Museums and Memorials and is set to some big band and WWII era songs. The hopes of this video are not only to thank each of you, but to also present a couple of places you may not have had the chance to visit yet, while listening to some wonderful music. This video is FREE, you pay nothing, however I would appreciate any written stories or copied pictures anyone would like to share. Whether it is one page or 300 pages, anything at all would be wonderful, and I will pay for the postage.

Thank you

I was wondering if anyone who served in C Battery 492nd Armored Field Artillery remembers my father Isadore(Izzy) Lastoff. He passed away in 1981 at the age of 72. I would appreciate hearing from you.

Hi! I was wondering if anyone had a group photo of the the guys from 42nd Tank Battalion, C Company. My great uncle John Rumage was a private with them. I read another guy's request for a similar photo of another company in a previous comment. Thanks again! I only have one photo of him since he was KIA on Jan. 1, 1945.

Jennifer- I have spent all morning in this guestbook and feel like I have found the Pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow. In August 2010 my sisters, Mother, and I attended the final reunion of the 11th Armored division there in Louisville, KY. I signed up for and did receive a list of the names of men in my father's unit which was 42Tank C company. After reading your posting I checked my list and I could not believe my eyes when I saw that your great uncle was on the list. I was beginning to think that I was looking for a needle in the haystack that I was NEVER going to find. I DO HAVE two large photos of his units. One is 30 inches long and one is 20inches. I am not sure at what location they were taken. He was at Fort Polk LA and some other places. Maybe together we can figure it out. I just called our local Fed Ex store and will in a few days go there and see if they can scan it into something digital for me to email you or at least make additional copies for me to mail to you. I would love for you to look at them and see if you recognize your uncle. My father, who passed away in 2002, spoke very little about the war and we only have a few copies of the Thunderbolt magazines. I will also email you with these comments to be sure that we can share our info. Thanks Elizabeth Shoemaker Justsayno00@aol.com

Hello, does anyone have a group photo of all the men that served in Company B, 42nd Tank Battalion? My grandfather was a tanker in this battalion and I don't have very many pics of him from his time in the war. His name was Robert V Burns from Somerville, Massachusetts. I would really like to get a copy if at all possible, thanks.

Rick Zamparelli Sunday, March 11, 2007 17:30
I have the photo. Unfortunately it nearly 6 feet long. I have asked for assistance to find a way to scan it and put it on the site.

My Great Great Uncle, Fred Ott, was also a tanker in Company B, 42nd Tank Battalion. He was wounded severly by gunfire after the Germans blew up the lead and rear tanks in his column in 1945 and they had to bale out to get away. Does anyone remember my Uncle Fred? I would also like to get a copy of the company picture if I could. aaronjhartong@juno.com

My father, Sergeant Raymond Lieberman, of the 56th Armored Engineers passed away today March 3, 2007. He only recently began talking about a few of his combat experiences but he was also very proud to have served with the brave men of the 11th Armored Thunderbolts.

I am a military spouse who is researching ID Tags/Dog Tags for a book I am writing. I am trying to reach active duty, veterans, and family members who have personal stories about (and images of) their Dog Tags. I have a website: www.dogtaghistory.com, and on it there are questionnaires for those that are interested in sharing their stories.

Hello,

It's a fantastic website.
I made a website about the 95th Infantry Division one year ago. This division was with the 11th Armored Division during the Battle for Metz (November 1944).

I search any contact of members of the 11th Armored Division who were with the 95th Division during the battle.

Please, visit http://www.ironmenofmetz.new.fr !

My father, Ivan Thornton Mundy, was a Chief Pharmacist Mate (Navy medic) who accompanied troops on the U.S.S.Hermitage in 1944--My Mother and I were living in NYC during that time, and would anxiously await his return from (Bristol, Liverpool,
Southhampton?) every few weeks. Apparently this was when the Hermitage was based at Staten Island.

Would be interested in communicating with anyone who might have known him. He served nobly in both the Atlantic and Pacific Theatres in WWII. He died in 1983.

Hello veterans and families of 11 Armored. I am a budding author, and am writing a book on German service rifles, and about the capture of several WW2 German arms factories by the US Army, namely the Gustloff Werke and Steyr factories in Austria. I know that elements of 11 Armored captured the Gustloff Werke factory, and have read with interest some accounts on this website. I would be interested in any stories from US vets or copies of pictures taken in and around these areas for the book. Feel free to contact me with any information you would like to share!Thanks.

My father was Ssgt Warren Foster, Co D, 41st Tank Battalion. He died on Dec. 7, 1971, when I was 12. Our family knew of his service, his purple heart & bronze star, and a bit of what he saw, but he never spoke of it. He had a scrapbook with pictures that I wasn't allowed to look at until after his death. It took a friend who found this website for me to learn the story of the 41st TB. I know now that those gruesome photos were of a forced labor camp, the route that he followed, and what he encountered. You have provided such a service to myself and my family, I thank you. Please be sure to share your stories now, don't wait. If anyone has anything they'd like to share please contact me.
God Bless,
Mike Foster

My friend Frank Vigil was a member of Troop D, 41st Recon, 11 AD. Are any of his fellow Soldiers still out there and remember Frank? He has been sharing many stories of his time in the unit and remembers his recon buddies fondly. If you knew Frank, please let me know. Thanks!
