(1779) I wanted to inform anyone in the 705th that my Grandfather, who I consider an American Hero, passed away on November 5, 2011. He was 91 yrs old. He was in the 705th Tank Destroyers 11th Battalion, B Co. He fought in the Battle of the Bulge and was taken prisoner on Dec. 24, 1945. His love for God & a beautiful woman back home kept him going till he was liberated by the British on May 1, 1945. When he finally got home he quickly proposed to her & they remained together for 60yrs. He was blessed with 8 children, 18 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. He rarely talked about his days in WWII but I do know he helped the 101st Airborne. Today is Veteran's Day and I would just like to say Thank You to all those who served our great country, the United States of America!

I somehow forgot to include his name. His name was Chester Sakwinski, but I called him Grandpa. :)
