My father was American GI and fought in the Battle of the Bulge. I have a photo of his that identifies General Evans and his aide Major Wilderman taken somewhere in Europe. Can anyone tell me what division General Evans was in charge of? It may have been the one my father was in. My father was a staff Sargent but I don't know which artillery division he was in. How can I find out more information about his position and role during this battle?
