    , I used to see him a lot when I was a kid...he did mention that, one of the very few things he did mention,[[ used to say hande hoch and how the Germans were good with mortars]] and I thought iIsaw him in a pic near there....but, I see the 157th, I think, was also at Dachau..so, I'm not sure if the 179th actually did the initial liberation....o, it was my uncle, not father--I do have his regimental book and 5 pages of letters...do not see Dachau in letters..no uniform that I know of.....I'll ask my surviving Aunts and Uncles....I've got the book Liberator about the 157th.......thanks for reply

    will do, I am at work now, probably be around 6 this evening.....the author signs the introduction 'hitler's apartment'' and in the Munich section he tells of the CP [HQ] of the 179th there
