Dear Ms. Arnold,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched National Archives Catalog and located the World War II Operations Reports, 1940-1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1917-1985 (Record Group 407) that includes records of the 13th Armored Regiment during WWII. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at email@example.com. We were unable to locate specific records of Company B. Records of lower echelon units sometimes were incorporated into the files of the regiment.
Rosters for units serving in World War II from 1944-46 were destroyed in accordance with Army disposition authorities. Instead, you may wish to request a copy of the unit’s morning reports. Morning reports for Army units from November 1, 1912 to 1959 are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL). For access to these records, please contact RL-SL via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For a history, please see this article about the 13th Armored Regiment from the National Museum of the United States Army.

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