Hello sir and thank you for the information. My trouble has been that (A) there isn't a lot of information out there about the 25th Recon, Troop C and (B) what information is available isn't very helpful for the researcher. Troops were attached do different Combat Commands (CCA, CCB, etc) at different times so it's difficult to find what action a particular troop was involved in - most literature simply states "elements of the 25th Recon." I'll keep digging and will certainly let you know if I find anything. My best bet might be to ride down to D.C. and see what I can locate in the National Archives! For your viewing pleasure and if I do this right, the Kreigsmarine dagger below was captured by my father-in-law early on during his deployment in Europe. There was quite a story he told (one of only a few) about how this took place - a captured Kreigsmarine officer and his family being led out of their "stolen house".............!My uncle, Milton F Landau, was (based on his gravestone) a member of Troop C, and was killed in action on 20 MAR 1945. So far I have not been able to determine where they were on that date.
Did find this information: Nov 9, 1944 or shortly thereafter: "A sudden shift to the south and CC B pushed to the Sarre River where the 8th Tank seized Fenetrange Thanksgiving Day. The first crossing of the Sarre was made by Troop C, 25th. Cavalrymen commanded by 1st Lt. John Keenan, Mars Hill, Me., rushed Gosselming with all guns blazing, took the bridge. Although intact, the span was mined and wired for demolition." From Lone Sentry: The 4th Armored: From the Beach to Bastogne -- WWII G.I. Stories Booklet
Would very much like any other information on Troop C and the 25th, and will share anything I find.
