My Father, Tsgt Clyde Russell Medders, RA 34928361, served with the 11th Armored Division. Fought in the Ardennes, Rhineland, and Central European Campaigns and was in Austria when the War ended. Don't know much about him or the specific unit he served with within the Division but, according to his Seperation Record dated 28 Mach 1946, he was a drove a half track and
was a Rifleman. It says he drove vehicle with Command Squad leading Platoon in Combat. He never spoke a lot about the War but did tell me that he was with his unit when they liberated a concentration camp. He told me it was the worst sight he could never forget. Other than that, he kept mostly to himself. I have one photo of him saved from a family house fire years ago. In the photo he is wearing a Bronze Star. How do I find out specifically which unit he served with? I have his flag and after all these years ( 1980 his death) I feel I owe it to him to get all his military history together so that I can finally place his flag in a proper case with all Awards and unit insignias. He served 24 years and retired Oct 31 1970 and passed Oct 31 1980. I miss him very much. Can you offer advice or help.
