Re: 778th Tank Battalion
This is certainly a long while after the original query, but for anyone interested in the Tank Battallions Alice mentioned, you really need to look at this website:
Tons of info on there, right down to mentioning when my husband's Uncle Bud (Sgt. Arthur E. Hayes) was promoted to tank commander and his death - with Baker Company, 778th TB.Be sure and check out the unit links and histories - lots of individual names listed within them.
Also lots of great information on Patton's 3rd Army of which the 11th Armored Div. was a part (and, of course, that includes the 778th TB).
