Hello All, What a great forum & thanks for having me! I began searching for info on my Father-in-Laws brother about a year ago... As a Vet myself, I was fairly interested finding information in the beginning but now its a small obsession I've just found this forum and am going to read through it in full tomorrow, but I'm on a time crunch for a Christmas Present (info Ive gathered)...I've been able to discover the following: In the beginning I only knew his birth name and what state he enlisted, Houston, Samuel L, CPL - 2nd Armored Division, 67 AR - Enlisted Ft. Ogelthorpe, GA 8OCT1943 #3488623 DOB: 19OCT1924 DOD: 3JAN1945 Buried: American War Cemetery Ardennes, Purple Heart w/ Oak Leaves After tracking down the above I was able to get some info from his brother who recalled a letter from his Tank Commander 1st Robert E Lee..I searched for Lee and that led me to a book by Donald E. Houston "Hell On Wheels".. On page 279 it mentions 1st LT Lee was in 'D' Company in Puffedorf... On page 358 it reads "Near the village of Carole, an enemy Panzerfaust hit Capt Lee's tank instantly killing the Gallant Captain and his crew instantly". Cpl Sam Houston was a crew member... Unfortunately, my search has come to a standstill after that (which believe me so far it has been fantastic to search.. I'm a 'Rookie, new guy' at searching...Ive searched & searched Google etc. trying to find: Company Rosters, Company Photos or really anything that Sam may be in... I desperately would like to hear any tips that any of you may have to help me acquire more info, any at all.... On a side-note: Everything that Ive collected I'm presenting to his brother to help give him some closure on Christmas Day next week... Along with a flag & certificate that a Col. friend of mine flew over his base on Veterans day 2015 in the UAE, Middle East on deployment in his memory.... Agian any suggestions would be greatly appreciated to find 'deeper' info.... Thank you for your time & Thank this site for keeping memories alive for many! Bryan McCann USN 93-96'
