I have attached some pictures of my grandfather taken during WWII. His name was Phillip Bernstein. He served in Company C, 41st Tank Battalion. In the picture with 2 solders, Phillip is in the light colored tee shirt. I do not know the identity of the other solder. 

Phillip was born 03 Jul 1917 in Fort Worth, Texas. He died 27 Apr 2001 in Richland Hills, TX. He served our country in the 2nd World War from 13 Jun 1941 - 18 Sep 1945 with the 11th Armored Division Thunderbolts. He fought in battles at Ardennes, Rhineland and Central Europe earning The Purple Heart Medal, 3 Bronze Stars, EAME Campaign Medal and The WW II Victory Medal.

Phillip was very proud of his military service and would often times become emotional when discussing WWII.

He went on to marry Vivian Jean Lampman and had one daughter, Sandra Kaye Bernstein - Campbell. He worked and retired from Bell Helicopter and General Dynamics.

I am his granddaughter, Jeanie Campbell Peel.
