My father fought in this war his title was and his buddy's were in the 532ed Armored Engineering
Company. I was just looking to see if I could see my father but there are so many photos. My mother gave some photos to me but my brother has taken them and said good by. So thanks and if anyone knew a man Named Robert H.Hauff from Michigan feel free to send me a note.
