Also, I saw that you were looking for information on your Dad. Joe, if your Dad was from Connecticut, it is likely that he was somewhere near my Dad, as there were a lot of guys from Connecticut that enlisted at the same time he did in November of 1942 and ended up in the 711th with him. But my Dad does not remember his name. Did he have a nickname? What did he do? Did he drive a tank? Was he in mechanical service (repairing tanks, etc)? Was he a cook? These groups were quite large, so it is easy not to get to know everyone.
