My dad was Bronislaw Pulkowski aka Pat otherwise known as the Pollack. He was in the 12 AD C 66 I believe halftrack driver. I remember growing up going to the reunions. Most memorable was Myrtle Beach South Carolina about 37 years ago. I also remember visiting a man called Tiny I believe he lived in Albany Is there still a paper called the Hellcat News? My mom used to receive it even after my dad passed away. Weston Lewis Emery sent my mom a picture of my dads name,AD, and C engraved on stone with other veterans. I 'm looking for info on this. I believe it's in Texas. Any help in answering my questions would be appreciated Thanks Carol Williams

Hi Carol,

I am the Legacy Director of the 12th Armored Division Association.

I am very interested in helping you find more information about your dad, not only because I am a member of the association but my uncle, was in C/66, killed 16 Jan 1945.

There many C/66 veterans alive today who may remember you dad.
Our next national reunion will be held in Abilene, TX Aug 13-17, 2008.
Yes, we still have the Hellcat News. If you have Adobe Reader, I will email the December 2007 issue to you. Please advise.
Tiny was most likely the cook for C company, but there is a veteran in Albany, NY named Al Loden who was / is very tall, but I never read about him being called Tiny, Loden was called Old Man Loden.

Weston Emery wrote a book about C/66 "C-66 A WWII Chronicle of an Armored Infantry Company" and it is available through our museum in Abilene, TX. Your dad is mentioned in Weston's book. He was a halftrack driver in the machinegun squad, first platoon, per Dale Washburn who I think is alive today.
I will forward you post to George O'Bryan, C/66 unit rep, and veteran of the 12th AD.

We have two websites, these are the links.
