Ole U Bob - I live on the west coast south of Seattle which I think that's why you think I stay up late. Tho I do do that sometimes.
The crests are sterling. Why haven't they tarnished? My silver table ware does and so does my silver jewelry. Big nuisance.
I know most of the story of the 893rd as I have all the S-3 Journals, the Combat Interviews, the General Orders etc. I also have papers about the Medal of Honoraward and some from the 707 Tank Bn. And a fewfrom Third TD Group and 78th ID. Maybe more but that's all off hand.
I was trying to learn of my husband's service. I have a lot but there is still a blank place for January 1 1945 - March 24,1945. The entry on the "Rcord of Service" is "no dy asgnd" So I search and learn other things.
Now - I located an email address for Patton Museum at Fort Knox. I have addressed them at that address and we will see what happens. Mary
