I am looking for any information on 820th TD BN reunions. My father in law (Chester Newman) was in CO. C recon. He was sent to Camp Swift Texas to help activate the newly created 820th. He was in Co. C recon during the battle of the Bulge. Please contact me at chuckmcclendon@yahoo.com.
Thank you.

Hello Michael, I have published a website for the 820th TD Battalion that is the most definitive on the web. It is at http://820tdbn.org A brief search did not find you grandfathers' name but the names of the recon enlisted men I have is from 1942 (recon cadre) It was the Co my grandfather was in. I would love to correspond with you more about the 820th. Thanks, JH

See 4-4 post re: 820th to Mr. McClenendon. In particular, Mr. Fred Modrak (MI) was in recon. Not sure who else was, but he would surely know. Best Luck. Let me know if I can be of further help.

My Dad is Fred Modrak and he was in the 820th in Recon. We do have some information about the 820th-some of which we got when I was living in Europe. My parents came to visit and we went to Esneaux a few times-we met the local WWII historians as well as the mayor and several other people who remembered the 820th very well. I have looked at the 820th website and I am so happy that someone took the time to put this together.
