605th Tank Destroyer Battalion
It is particularly fitting at this time that such a record be made available, since it is anticipated, in the near future most of us will be deployed in other assignments for the war with Japan. In my opinion, we have one of the finest groups of officers and men any unit of the Army as ever had. I have been honored in having the command.
I hope the future holds a time when we may be together again to talk over the old days, or that when we meet as individuals it will be "Here's to the 605".

Lt. Col. 605th TD Bn.
Hundreds of men within the 605th Tank Destroyer Battalion served our nation to protect and support our way of life and those around the globe. Many stories were never told, but for what we do know, it's our duty to honor them and preserve their sacrifices as best as we're able.
The Men & Their Stories
Again thanks to the journal kept by the commanding officer we have a detailed roster of each of the men and battalions within the 605th TDB. Here it is our mission to allow you a place to find a name, but also provide pictures, documents and or stories so that we can create a page in honor of your hero.
