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 Saturday, September 18, 2004 14:55
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?

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 For more information on the plaque, contact me at

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.
