Back To The 645th Tank
    Destroyer Bn. Photogallery 


  Attached is a photo of my Dad and his crew being awarded the Bronze
Star for heroic achievement in action on 7 April 1945 near Sunderau and
Untereisbach, Germany. Company A, 645th Tank Destroyer Battalion, 45th
Infantry. My father, Judge C. Wythe Edwards is on the far right. His
crew are Roy C. Bell, Ralph J. Barrale, Sam B. Poblano and Jack Rosen.
Also attached is a copy of the document associated with the Bronze Star
I have attached two other pictures of my father, including one taken on
his Tank Destroyer, named "Shirley", in honor of my mother. He is
sitting on the turret highest among the crew. Another picture shows the
crew seated on steps and my dad is holding a cane, which I still have.
