Looking for inforamtion on Frank Pazaricky, 82nd Airborne, 806 TD, 1st Alied Airborne, 4th Armor Division. He was wounded in Bastogne. His records were lost in a fire. I have a copy of his DD214 but it dose not have units attached to. I have his medals and some information but would like to know what patches and other things he might have rated. I am trying to put together a shadow box for his granddaughter. Any information on the above would help.

My father, Hupert Dawdy, was a Scout in the 426th Armored Field Artillery Battalion Battery B (formerly the 663rd Tank Destroyer, according to your site) and served with them in Leyte, Philippines. I have some pictures I'll be glad to share, many including his buddies. This was 1945. Thank you so much for having this site!

Great news. After several years of research and a 9 month Congressional inquirey, CPL Johnnie C. Amacker of the 704th Tank Destroyer Battalion, Company "A", has recieved the Purple Heart Medal for wounds sustained in action during his WWII service in Europe.This comes almost 70 years after the fact, but better late than never. It is worth noting that the Purple Heart Medal is an entitlement and it is earned not awarded.
Great site. Thanks for what you do.
