419th AFA in the News

Over the years, veterans of the 419th Armored Field Artillery Battalion were featured in newspapers throughout the U.S. As I attend reunions, I collect more of these stories. If you are a son, daughter, niece, nephew, relative, friend of a 419th AFA vet, and have a news clipping to share, please send it to me and I will publish it here. Thanks!

The Parkersburg News, May 1945
