HQ 63rd AIB  Back to Member Photos


I have a number of valuable photos of my fathers taken during the war. My father was Pfc. Donald M Newell; he was a combat medic in the 11th armored division. His uniform has the 11th armored patch on the right shoulder & also a thunderbolt patch on the left shoulder that has the number 4 (I assume this means unit 4). My father attended a number of 11th armored division reunions in the 90s. Also visit http://www.newell-nordstrom-family.com/Web_Galleries.html for additional info.

Sincerely, Vince Newell
