    Roster of 66th Armored Regiment, WWII

    David Butenschoen Newbie

      Is there a roster of the men who served in the 66th Armored Regiment, 2nd Armored Division during WWII? I have a " History of the 67th Armored Regiment "and it has a wonderful roster in back that I use all the time. But the 66th Armored Regiment didn't publish a history..  Thank you for any help.

          Dear Mr. Butenschoen,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the World War II Operations Reports, 1940-1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1905-1981 (Record Group 407) and located a 63-page history of the 66th Armored Regiment that includes lists of casualties but not of the entire unit. For access to and/or copies of the history, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.

           

          Copies of most of the monthly rosters from 1912-43 and 1947-59 for Army units (including Army Air Corps) are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL). For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at St. Louis, ATTN: RL-SL, P.O. Box 38757, St. Louis, MO 63138-0757 or via email at stl.archives@nara.gov. Rosters for units serving in World War II from 1944-46 were destroyed in accordance with Army disposition authorities.

           

          We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
