The 9th Armored was dad's division when he served in WWII. Like so many men who came home, he really never talked about it. (We visited "army buddies" occasionally, or they visited us. If they talked about the war, we weren't privy to it).
If you click the link above, you'll find a movie taken during the war (on a website Larry found called Critical Past, where you can "search over 57000 videos and seven million images"). This particular video was recorded in Remagen, Germany in 1945.
Dad was a tank mechanic, and just look at all the places he fought--click ► to enlarge...
(BTW, I was sure I posted these before, but couldn't find them. This time, I'll label the post).
Just so ya know, I've sent copies of these papers to the National Archives. I emailed a request for whatever they had, and was told his records were in a 1973 fire at the National Personnel Records Center that destroyed most of the WWII enlisted persons records.
The National Archives has an online database of World War II Army Enlistment Records with more than 9 million entries. The database is in the Access to Archival Databases (AAD) at THIS ADDRESS.
Thanks again, Larry...☺
