My grandfather also was part of one of the tank destroyer battalions. I cant remember what number but he was in the battle of the bulge and the hurtgen forest. I brought over a movie for him one time called when trumpets fade. He could not believe how accurate most of the movie was. He couldn't finish it. He was staff sergeant John F. Johnson. He passed several years ago. These were definitely the bravest and toughest men to walk this earth.

My name is Warren Johnson, and I’m researching the role my grandfather and his 5 brothers played in WW2 (they are all long since passed away). I’ve obtained a copy of my granduncle’s discharge papers Alfred V. Johnson, serial number 17106636.
I would have sent you an email but your “contact” tab isn’t working.
Alfred’s discharge papers state his unit was the HQ company of the 774th tank destroyer battalion.
I looked through a roster link on your page for the 774th and didn’t see his name.... I know that a lot of times guys were transferred to HQ units just prior to discharge for admin reasons, so I’m thinking is was probably somewhere else within the destroyer group, but not sure.
I really have no other info on this granduncle, so any help or information you may have would be greatly appreciated.
One of my other granduncles was a paratrooper on D-day, and I happen to be heading over to France this June for the 75th anniversary. If I can learn more about where my granduncle Alfred was as wel, I’d really like to visit some of the places he was..
Thanks so much for your time,
Anybody with any info please contact me at Johnson.email@example.com

I live 5 miles away from Climbach, France. Ashamed to say I only just learned about what happened there with the 614th TD attached to 411th infantry on 12/14/1944
What's worse is there is no memorial or anything in the whole area. Would like to use the contact page but it seems to be broken. Anyone want any information, feel free to contact me.

My dad, Clinton T. Walker, Jr., was a member of the 614th Tank Destroyer Battalion... Today, 15 February 2019, is the 36th anniversary of his death. Daddy was born in 1913. I truly appreciate this website, and want to learn as much as I can. Thank you.

I found a 1988 Reunion shirt of the 804th tank destroyer battalion, and a quick google search led me to this site. Very interesting to read about the history I am wearing!
