My uncle Glenn A Granquist of Wayne, Nebraska served with the 636th Tank Destroyer Battalion. According to his obituary, he drove the lead tank into Rome. Thanks to the information I discovered at this site, I now know that would have been in June 1944. Fortunately Uncle Glenn survived the war and returned home to raise a family and to farm.

My Dad, Corporal Clarence Timinelli, was a member of the 806th Tank Destroyer Battalion, Company C. He said that he had been ready to deploy on numerous occasions, but all were cancelled. As per the presented documents, and my Dad’s own words, the 806th was deployed to invade Japan, and the war ended while the men were at sea en route to Pearl Harbor. Dad always stated how lucky he was. He finished his service as an MP in the Philippines. Dad passed on May 3, 2018.

My great uncles, Adolph & Albert Haschke served in the 692nd TD Battalion "B" Company. Albert Haschke was on Jack Myers tank crew and, unfortunately didn't make it home. He was a casualty of the Rhineland Campaign in early March of 1945. The pictures and information provided here on tankdestroyer.net has been a great help in learning more about my uncles and the great men they served with.

My father, John F. Kukitz was a Hellcat. He passed many years ago and I don’t have much information about his time in the military. Any help / suggestions as to where I could find some of his history would be greatly appreciated.
