Phil has been researching the 52nd Armored Infantry Battalion, of the Ninth Armored Division for over 10 years now. Within the last six months, he managed to obtain their monthly reports from October 1944, through May 1945. These, and every book on the subject that he could get his hands on, have verified the accuracy of the fantastic stories of his war experiences that his father used to tell him as a child.
Most recently, President Bush authorized a Presidential Citation for that unit, and Belgium has awarded them their highest unit citation. Alas the survivors of that outfit have by now passed away of old age.
