Shortly after I started to learn more about my grandfather's time in the Army. I found out that his brother had also served during WWII. I got in contact with his son, He told me that his father served under George S. Patton and that he drove a Half-Track in Germany. My question to all the experts on this site is. What would have been the role of a Half-track driver during Patton's march? I'm also interested in any info that can be gained from the caption on the back of the first picture. It reads: "March 3, 1945 IRL, Germany I'm very proud of this old Half- Track she done her part" He is the one holding the wrench. I just recently got more info on him he served in the 14th Armored Division after his discharge he joined the Colorado National Guard Now that I know he lived in Blue Hill after he was discharged. I am hoping to get his discharge from the county clerk. So I can maybe narrow down what unit he served with. Any info on the 14th Armored Division, or Half Track drivers in Germany is greatly appreciated!
