I am a Legacy Member of the 12th Armored Division Association and will try to help you with your question. I looked for your grandfather on the members list of this site and the roster list of the http://12tharmoreddivision.com/. Did not see his name on either sites. This happens from time to time. How do you know your grandfather was assigned to the 714th? Do you have his DD214 form? Did he survive the war? Was he a POW?
Each Battalion of the 12th ADA has a unit Rep. The Rep. for the 714th is Alice Tankeseley, PH. 804-231-7210 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Contact Alice, she might be able to help you. I'll forward your question to another member who was a 714th tanker. He may remember your grandfather's name or the name of the tank.

Hello Daniel...I am seeking to locate relatives of Lt Col Daniel J Kern, Army, who served with the "monuments Men"in WWII, a unit that, near the end of the war assisted in the preservation of stolen art stolen by the Nazi's. He lived in Brooklyn N.Y. after the war and was a free lance writer. He may have died in 1987.
This is for a book being written about the unit.
If this is the Daniel J. Kern you are seeking, please give me a call.
