My father was Walter Abbott and in Co A 805th TD. Thank you for the website. Like so many, my father's records were lost in the warehouse fire. Unfortunately, his war time memorabilia was lost in a house fire shortly after the war ended. We struggle to find information. Thanks for helping with that effort.

On Veterans Day today, I would like to thank Rob Haldeman for his work in initiating this website with his team to honor the service and sacrifices of so many brave soldiers. Our family is very proud that my dad, Leo R. Norkewicz, who served in the Reconnaissance Company of the 636th Tank Destroyer Battalion, was included earlier this year as one of the honorees. Like many other veterans, my dad did not talk too much about his service during his life. Discovering this website helped to add to our knowledge about his battalion’s military campaigns. Thanks again for keeping the memory of my dad, all these men and the Tank Destroyer Forces alive!

Only recently learned the history of my late grandfather and his time in service. He joined at 17 in 1939 and was in the 813th TDB. Got out 2 months after VE. He died in 1969 and i never got to meet him. Any info on Tec Sgt. Sidney Hewett would be greatly appreciated. I'm a proud grandson and am thankful for all those men did to save our great nation.

My grandfather was a corporal in the 661st. I’m trying to find out what company he was in. I recently came across a letter he received from Lt. Col Miller dated 4/20/45. It was a letter Stating how pleased the army was of their recent experience fighting to Leipzig. Can provide a digitized copy of requested.

My grandfather, Charles Ferris, served in the 630th TD and, as I'm going through family files, found a number of photos of the 630th TD and group photo at AP Hill. Also have a platoon diary from either 2nd or 3rd platoon (there's a smudge and can't tell), but it doesn't seem to match any dates for the diary items on this site, so it might be something new. Happy to share and connect this info if this site is still active.
