My father Kenneth G Reynolds is the soldier w/glasses and his arms around trooper next to him. Dad was a T/5 in B Battery, 573d AAA AW SP BN.
This pic was taken when B Battery was attached to 9th Army Hdqtrs during its drive toward Berlin. In the pic you can a shoulder patch of the 9th Army.
I am looking for other members of the 573d AAA. I aready have a Gerald Hurlbert and Ken Jarvis addresses. The 573d was commanded by Ltc. John Welch and saw some of the bloodiest fighting during the war including hand to hand combat.
