Unit Payroll Records & Rosters - HQ Co. 6th Tank Destroyer Group

Anyone that has attempted to obtain the personnel records of a family member from the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Louis, MO, was probably sent a letter identifying that they would not be able to assist you due to a fire that occurred in 1973.  In that fire, a reported 80% of the Army's personnel records were lost.  With the assistance of my local Representative, Congressman Joe Pitts, I was able to get a few Payroll Records and Unit Rosters from the Center.  It was these lists, which included names and serial numbers of the enlisted men, that eventually led me to contact some of the families of these men.  Please note that names and serial numbers of the men can be obtained from a number of Governmental Sources, it was the connection to the unit that was of value to me.

The records are difficult to read with some being more difficult that others.  Some are basically illegible and are only useful to cross-reference with others that may be more legible.  I have marked each report accordingly. Please note that "EM" stands for Enlisted Men. "O" stands for Officers.
