My grandfather was in the 2nd Armored, stationed at Fort Benning, GA, on December 7th 1941. The next morning he saved the local newspaper and kept it for his entire life. After he died it went to my mother and when she passed away late last year (thanks covid) it came to me. It was in pretty rough shape but I decided to get it framed so it would be better preserved and I could hang it in my game room. Hopefully I did it justice.

Very nice. Grandpa and Mom would be proud!

My uncle was in the same division though I don't know where he was when Pearl Harbor was attacked. He was drafted earlier in 1941 (I think) and went through the entire war with "Hell on Wheels" and returned home safe. I think he was an infantrymen in one of the armored infantry battalions, though family mythology is my main source of information.
