Can anyone help me names concerning the photo of the HQ company of the 643rd? I believe my father Milt is holding the company flag in the upper right of this photo. I have never seen this shot until I used this fascinating website. Milt passed away earlier this month (Aug 2011) in his hometown of Cincinnati, OH. Thank you.

Is there anyone who can assist my family with information about the murder of Lloyd W. Knapp by Roy A. Prentiss on 6 April, 1943 at Camp Hood Texas? They both might have been members of the 643rd. Lloyd definately was. Any info would be much appreciated. Thank You.

Bedankt voor het berichtje in mijn gastenboek! Als je toch daar in de buurt bent breng dan een bezoekje aan Fort La Ferté . Fort La Ferté is een onderdeel van de Maginot, er is tijden de WW2 heftig gevochten. Je kan de info in mijn laatste reisverslag vinden. Veel plezier!!! Ik ga jou website nu eens rustig bekijken. Groet Ronald

My father was in the 743rd tank division. He entered the service on September 4, 1943. He died when I was 2 so I don't know much about his time in the service. I do have a picture of him next to his tank after the Roer river crossing. His name is Hubert H Pennington. If anyone knew him or heard of him in the service I would appreciate any information.

My brother, 1st Lt. Donald Floyd Turner, was a platoon leader with Company B of the 743rd on Omaha beach and was one of two officers of Company B KIA on the beach that day. Our family has never learned much about his exerience other than to suspect he may have endured most of the day as the one fragment of information is that he was killed when he rose high in his turret in order to motion his platoon (or perhaps the entire unit, as he could have taken command when the Company B captain was killied) to move out off the beach after the way had been opened by demolition crews.

My grandfather, Francis Cunningham, served with the 643rd. I only found this out from your website while I was searching for the Crest "
hit hard". to my surprise he is listed on the roster of soldiers. his army records were destroyed at the national archives so I am thankful for this web site. If anyone knew my granfather and has any photos I would love to see.

Nice site, Ben. My dad was with the 743rd Tank Battalion. My wife and I recently were in Amsterdam, later rented a car and drove around Belgium, Aachen, St. Vith, and into Luxembourg. Beautiful country. One writer below says to also remember the German soldiers, and we stopped at both the American and German cemeteries in Luxemourg City. The German stones had dates of birth on them, as well as dates of death (the American cemetery has only dates of death), and seeing the ages - 18 year old boys - is heartbreaking.

Thank you so much for the work you have put into the website. You have done a wonderful job and should be very proud.

My father, Marion E. Cooper (#32485579) was a Staff Sargent in the 643rd TD. Dad is still alive at 88 years old and doing fine. I have a picture of him in dress uniform and a copy of his enlisted record and discharge, which I would be happy to send you. Thanks again and I hope to hear from you.
