    Seeking military information about Charles West

    Pamela Risher Newbie

      My grandfather, Charles Robert West, was a Tech 4 in the 36th Tank Battalion of the 8th Armored Division. He was KIA  in the city of Rheinberg, Germany on March 5, 1945 and received a Purple Heart for his service. He was a member of The Thundering Herd. I would appreciate any additional information or pictures, as I have just this past year learned he was my biological grandfather because my dad was adopted. It was such an honor to learn of this. I have his requested military records, but I have not heard anything.
