My Dad's name was Dwight T Nickell, Sr.
He was assigned to 11th Armored Div
Company Command A
Trying to find anyone in the same unit that knew my Dad. He never talked a lot about his experiences during the war but did open up to me after I had return from my tour in Vietnam as I had some problems. He was a very caring Father and GrandPa. He is missed.

Your Dad was assigned to the Headquarters of Combat Command A. Combat Commands in armored divisions were the equivalent of regiments in infantry divisions. The organization was somewhat flexible, but generally consisted of one infantry battalion, one artillery battalion, one tank battalion, and supporting units. You may be proud of your Dad's service, and of his part in bringing freedom to Europe.
