I first posted this back in 2004.Since then I had a hard drive crash, and couldn't remember the web-site where I had posted it.I found it again today, and thought I would post again.
I am looking for veterens, spouses, or children of WWII veterens who fought in the european theater with the Seventh Armored Ddivision, 40th Tank Batallion, Company B. I am trying to find more information about my father, Claud (pinky) Allsop. Following is a list of men he either trained with or fought with. Please let me know if you have any information on any of these men, or my father.The names of some of these men were in a little booklet he had with him at Fort Knox during training.It was something like a year book where them men wrote a short comment and then signed their name.
