Thank you for this web site! I've been reading it off and on for almost 3 years now. My uncle, Lewis F. Grove served in the 55th AIB, B company, KIA Jan 16, 1945. He was also a member of the ASTP and studied in Washington state. I have been in touch with many of you and I appreciate all the information I've received. If there is anyone else out there who might remember Lew that I haven't talked to, please get in touch. And thank you for your service to our country!

My grandfather, Quinton Summers, was with the 713 Tank Battalion in Okinawa in Apr 1945 and will not talk about it other than to say that. I am a desert storm vet and am very interested in his service. If anyone has any information on the 713 or know him or can give me any information about it I would be very greatful

My father, Ellis William Evans, was a machine gunner with Co. C 21st AIB and is still pretty spry for an 82 year old.
He would like to hear from anyone from Co. C. E-mail me and I will make the arrangements.
As a veteran of the Vietnam war I would like to say thank you for your service to our country.

Sorry to post again so soon but I wanted to mention that my father lost a very dear friend, Robert Pilbeam, during the war in 63rd AIB, Company C. He would welcome the opportunity to speak to any family remaining. He speaks very highly of this man.

My father served in the 11th Armored Division, 63rd AIB, Company C. His name is Richard Russell and he was from Midland, PA. I was honored to take him to D.C. for the reunion and memorial dedication. What a privilege! He was not able to connect with anyone from his division and since our return to Wyoming he has been anxious to get any information about those he served with. If anyone out there has information or can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful. My father is alive, 78 young years old and doing well in Wheatland, WY.

My uncle, Alan Pifer, was a 2nd Lt. and Transportation Officer in the Service Company of the 22nd Tank Battalion in the 11th. 15 years ago he wrote a 50-page essay of his experiences in the 11th, from California to Austria. He is still alive, living in Vermont, and I happened to see him 2 days ago, and he gave me permission to pass on his story to any person or organization that might be interested in it. It is very well written, and really gives a graphic sense of what it was like to be in the lower echelons where you have no idea what's happening anywhere else. Is there any part of this website where such documents can be made available?

Also, if anyone reading this was in his Service Company and remembers him, I would be happy to put you in touch, just send me an email. Also, if anyone reading this wants a copy of his essay, let me know. I only have a hard copy, but intend to find some way to scan it into my computer soon.

Thank you to all who liberated my town of Suippes,SE of Reims. I have fond memories of all of you eventhough I was only 3 years old. Hard to think that one would have pleasant memories but I do. I have never forgotten and never will the kindness of the American GIs to the French people of Suippes. Thank you. God Bless

Gentlemen: I have come across a framed and glass-fronted wall hanging headed "U.S.A. SERVICE ROLL" from the Church of Christ of Central Point, OR. I was surprised to find the name of Cpl. Earl W. Weaver, Service B'try 491st Armored F.A. B'n. A.P.O. 261 Camp Polk, LA. (honorable discharge). Earl Weaver was a name in the family tree of the SKEEN family, having married a Mary Skeen, my Grandfather's sister. I would appreciate any and all information I could be given on Cpl. Weaver. Use my e-mail address please. Many thanks to all who served that we might be free!!!

I'm named for Pfc. Lawrence F. Buracker, my father's adopted broher, KIA March 13, 1945, serving with the 41st Tank Battalion, 11th Armored Division, in Germany. He's buried in the Luxembourg American Cemetery. My father, still alive, served in a 7th Army artillery unit. I'd like to hear from anyone who knew Lawrence Buracker, a native of Luray, Virginia.

I really enjoyed visiting your site and will return to continue to gather information on the 63rd AIB. My father, Clarence A. Richter was a Captain in that division. He died when I was young, so I never got to learn much about him. If anoyone has any information, I would appreciate hearing from you.

Jenny Brownlee Tuesday, September 28, 2004 19:00
I think my dad served with yours OCS as well as in Europe. His name was Merritt Johnson, and he was also a captain at that time. I have sent you an email with more information.

(39) Hello,

My grandfather, George William Morris Jr., was in WWII & in the 11th Armored Div., 41st Cavalry Reconnaissance Sq. He passed away in January 1991 and is now buried in the Columbarium at Arlington National Cemetery.

I have 4 tickets to attend the WWII Memorial Dedication Ceremony in Washington DC on May 29, 2004 at 10:00 a.m. However, I'm unable to go & thought it would be nice to offer them to someone who fought alongside my grandfather.

If anyone is interested in having these 4 free tickets, I can send them to you Fed-Ex. The seats are in Section 2, which is right by the Reflecting Pool. Email me at kat_christ@yahoo.com.

Thank you,
Katherine Christ

My father, Murray Korn (491st Armored Field Artillery of the 11th Armored Division) will be in Washington, DC for the inauguration of the WWII memorial over Memorial Day weekend, 2004. He is not aware of any reunion plans during that weekend for the 11th Armored Division). Will any of his buddies from those days also be in Washington for the celebration? It would be a wonderful experience for him to be able to catch up with you. He is not terribly computer literate, so I am writing this note on his behalf. Thanks for your responses. Regards, Joel Korn

I am pleased to find you web site. I was born in Abilene Tx (1939) and my father managed the Abilene State Park near Camp Barkeley during the war. I remember the soldiers from the camp coming to the park for R&R after maneuvers. They would park their jeep, tanks, halftracks, ect. in an area adjacent the park pavilion. On one such occasion my brother, who was 6 years older than I, were watching the convoy roll by when a tank pulled up and a soldier stuck his head out of the hatch and ask us if we wanted a ride. I was really excited and wanted to go but my brother was somewhat shy and would not go and I could not go without him. Boy I would loved to have taken a ride in that tank!

When the soldiers came to the park my father let them in to the pool for free.
There was a dance pavilion with a Wurlitzer jukebox and the soldiers loved to come on weekends when they could and dance with the local teenage girls. My teenage sister pulled lifeguard duty at the pool.

Would love to hear from any Camp Barkeley vets that remember the State Park.

Mr Tanner,

I hope I am not too late but I would like to know if by any chance you knew George McAdams.His nickname was 'Mac' and he served in Battery A of the 490th AFA as well. He was my Great-Grandfather and If you knew him or knew of him it would mean a lot if you emailed me.

(23) Hi, I really enjoyed your site. It had a great amount of information especially helpful to me in finding information about my great uncle who has in B Co., 42nd Tank Battalion. His name was SSGT. Harold E. Oliver and he died Jan. 1, 1945 around the area of Rechnval, Belgium, I think? If anyone knew him or has some pictures of him that they could send me I would greatly appricate it. I am very proud of the what he did and the sacrifice he and all of you made for us. As a veteran myself I would hate to let is memory faded away. So if anyone has any stories or information about his what he got his Bronze Star for or anything I would appreciate it. I have attached a picture of him.

Thanks - Bradley S. Denton

smile I've missed it by one day but on 12 Apr 45 Pres FDR died and the Thunder- bolts were operating in the vicinity of KRONACH. I have been doing research on KRONACH for a number of years (I was stationed there in 1955-56) and would like to hear from anyone who has anecdotes about the town. The division was travelling mighty fast in those days so there might not be much memorable about KRONACH but units were there and also in WEISSENBRUNN and UNTERSTEINACH.

My grandfather, Richard Nelson, joined Co. B, 55AIB as a replacement in late January, 1945. If anyone recalls serving with him, it would be great to hear from you. Unfortunately, my grandfather passed away several years ago. Understandably, he never said much about the war. I'm proud of him though, and am trying to piece together bits of his story for the family. If anyone has info about serving with him or in the 55th (that's not already posted on this great site), I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

Samuel Mikulin, my father, served in the 21 AIB of the 11th Armored. He passed away on 14 April 2000. If anyone remembers him and served with him or with the unit, I would love to hear from you, no matter how brief the comment or note. Maj Nancy Mikulin, USAF

Maj. Mikulin,

My name is Pete C. Ontiveros Jr. My father was Pete C. Ontiveros and he served with the 11th Armored 21st inf. during WWII. He passed away on May 27th 2003. He recalled those times with great pride and I have been trying to contact anyone who might have known him during the war. Can you help me out?

ATTENTION 55TH AIB MEN!

To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the 55th AIB's encampment and training in England in the Fall of 1944, I have organized a 10-day tour of Wiltshire and London for the men of the battalion and their families on September 7-16, 2004. The tour is hosted by Valor Tours, Ltd. of Sausalito, CA -- the provider of the 55th AIB's memorable tours to Belgium/Luxembourg and Germany/Austria in 2000. In conjunction with the tour, a plaque will be dedicated in Tisbury (the 55th AIB's HQ in Wiltshire) to the men of the battalion.

For more information on the England tour, contact Valor Tours at (800) 842-4504, or at info@valortours.com. For more information on the plaque, contact me at a55aib@yahoo.com.

My father in law, John Bonk from Delaware, served in the 41 Cav Rec at least while they were stateside. He ended up in the Pacific somehow. I have a good picture of him with some buddies. They appear to be Steve Bunzo (sp?) of PA, Francis Pouch or Ponch from NJ and a John Smith from NC. Contact me if you like a copy!

Hello, I have been trying to locate information on my Grandfather. He was a Sgt in the 63rd AIB. He passed away a few years ago and I do not have any information on his service record or any information on him in general. I am trying to locate anyone who may have remembered him and can tell me anything about him. His name is Nicholas John Dietz. He served from November 1942 through December 12th 1945. He received an honorable discharge. I have his VA records, but the archives in St. Louis had a fire in the 80's and cannot locate his records. If anyone remembers him or anything about him I would greatly appreciate any information you could provide.

Thank you in advance.

Armored Training Center DI Pin Distinctive Insignia (DI) of the Armored Force Replacement Training Center Measuring 1? inches tall, it used the same color scheme as the generic armored forces insignia and featured an armored fist holding three lightning bolts. The words "We Forge The Thunderbolt" represent the training mission.
