      Upgrade July 26,2017   07/27/17

      We had an upgrade to the system this morning and I had to temporarily disable the theme/colors/look-feel of the forum. The forum was acting strangely and was moving along at a snails pace, so had to perform some tests. After I disabled all the customizations, things improved immensely, so... I am hoping to add our colors back, but till then...bear with me. Thanks!

      Advertisers   08/12/17

      If you would like to advertise on my VI Corps site, please let me know. However, all ads must be directly related to WWII. Are you an author? Are you conducting tours? Are you a researcher? Prices are very reasonable, for aren't we here to benefit each other? Looking forward to hearing from you. 

      Viewers, please note, there WILL NOT be giant pop-up ads on my site. Nothing infuriates me more than going to someone's site and having to scroll past obnoxious, in your face ads or ones that are stuck in the middle of articles, forcing you to scroll further down the page to see the rest of the paragraphs. They will be tasteful, appropriately places small banners.

Here's a newspaper article sent to me by John Morris:

 

My dad was a member of the 757 tank battalion, he kept this in his stuff along with his broken duck. I hope you find this useful.

Can anyone help me understand the command relationship of the 757th Tank Battalion? My late grandfather, Technician Five Don Williams, was in that Battalion. I cannot find a connection between that Bn and Combat Engineers or understand who there parent command was.

Standing by,

Some units do not have DIRECT ties to the engineers here, per se, but we feature units who fought along in the same theater of action. In this case the 5th Army in Italy. 

If you haven't already, you should read another post in the forum regarding the 757th. This will give you an idea of their lineage and the units they fought with.
