    Seeking information for 41st Tank Battalion & US Allied Commission in Austria

    Newbie

      Hi there, I would like to know where I could a list or information of personnel who served in the U.S. Allied Commission in Austria right after World War II. I am trying to create my father's tenure serving as a military governor in Gmunden and/or Linz, Austria following the end of World War II.

       

      He served in the 11th Armored Division, 41st Tank Battalion that moved down the Rhine with the 3rd Army after the Battle of the Bulge. He was among the liberators of the Mauthausen Concentration Camp. After the war was over he served in the occupation government. I am interested in locating as much information on that period of his service as possible.
