Requesting  info on Armored Bn / COs
Dec 19th, 2009, 11:48am
 
[font=Courier][/font][size=12][/size]                                                                                        Requesting  information on Armored Bn / Co  from Ohio prior to    surrender.   I think the armored folks wore a seperate shoulder patch representing the different battalions.  What did they look like?  Did some drill time at the 213th  Ord Maint Co. at Camp Perry, Ohio.  They claim lineage to some armored unit sent to PI  prior to Pearl Harbor.  Eagerly interested in any relative subject matter.  Regards,   WB Huh Huh

There were the 192nd and 194th Tank Battalions in the Philippines, but none included Philippine Scouts.

I believe Company C, 192nd Tank Battalion is the unit you're referring to. They were originally from Port Clinton, OH.

Victor,  Thanks for the info on the 192 Tank Bn.  The Ohio National Guard Armory at Camp Perry is just a few miles from Port Clinton ~~ both located on the shores of Lake Erie.  The inside walls of the armory drill hall is lined with glass cases filled with artifacts, photos, weapons, memorabilia,(Japaneese stuff also)  etc. relating to the defense of the PI and consequences.  Since 9-11 security has tightened somewhat , but if you get a chance the armory display is worth seeing.  Thanks again.  Regards,  WB

Someday... one day.  It might turn out to be a bit more expensive trip as I might come back with a CMP garand if I go there Cheesy

"They never lost their faith, though, that America would come to their rescue, nor did they lose their faith in themselves and in God. As Americans, we owe them a debt of gratitude for our lives. For this very reason, they must be recognized and remembered in the annals of history, and also memorialized so no one forgets the sacrifices they gave for their country-The United States of America."

"They must be recognized...the scarifices they gave"

Members of the 192nd had no choice but to fight the enemy as infantrymen before taken prisoner of killed in action.

It was common to be awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge (CIB)upon repatriation.

Time has caused the Army Awads Branch to ignore or refuse to follow the guideline that warranted the CIB to former members of the 192nd.  Today, the Army refuses to award the CIB to any member of the unit regardless of recipients that fought along side.
