As the 7th Armored Division liberated areas of Europe and passed through liberated areas, foreign nationals who sought to help defeat the Germans volunteered their services, for translation, navigation, and combat. Some of these men were very seriously wounded. This web page, begun March 19, 2007 (long overdue), is intended to identify these men, who were never officially on the rosters of the Division but gave important service.
The arrangement is by the unit that they fought for, preceded by an alphabetical index. The detailed information on an individual is in the section by unit.
As of October 2008, this page is expanded to include those foreign nationals who did not fight as members of the 7th Armored Division but were recognized by the 7th Armored Division for actions specifically aiding the Division.
