This is my grandad in the 745th tank. Im so so proud of him for what he accomplished and did for our country. And it brings a big smile to my face when i see him in photos that are being displayed on websites, its just amazing.

Hi Jennifer, what was your grandad's name? My wife's grandfather was also in the 745th, Co. B and I am writing his memoirs. Have done some extensive research into the 745th.
