Dick Waits 18th Armored Replacement Battalion Picture

Sue Rizvi contributed these photos of United States Army Company B, 18th Armored Replacement Battalion, taken 1/1941 at Fort Knox, Kentucky.  My great grand uncle, Charles Richard “Dick” Waits is on the far right, third row from the top.

Rolled-up, with creases and many signs of wear, the original photo was found in the home of Paul and Bette Hang in Circleville, Ohio. Bette was Dick’s sister-in-law until he was KIA on 4/6/45 in Germany. Sue, Bette’s daughter, was kind enough to scan the original photo into four separate files (the photo is too large to fit on a standard flatbed scanner) and email them to me. I decided to have the photos retouched and put back together.  I contacted Miles Abernathy at 399Retouch for the picture retouch.  For an affordable price and fast turnaround time, I thought they did an outstanding job.

    Hi !
    My name is Mario Curzio. My father, John Curzio was a member of Company B, 18th Armored Replacement Battalion and served as a tank instructor. I have an original photo taken January, 1943. I have my fathers photo album from Fort Knox that tells a story in and of itself. Anyone interested or has more information, please contact me at Sgtmario3@aol.com.

    I apologize that it took me so long to reply to your post, Mario. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving your comment. I would be very interested in learning of your father’s service and his time with the 18th. It would be wonderful to view the photos from his Fort Knox album if you would be willing to share them. Thanks again!
