Trevor,

 

Am copying the information that you requested on Monday and will send out. Have a photo of him in front of his LVT A and his crew. His nickname was TEX and he was killed by stepping on a landmine according to his shipmates.

Pfc. Boyd "Bun" Bunion Stanford was my great uncle. I have been looking for his Purple Heart to buy and give to my Dad. My Dad was born to Bun's sister, Audie Stanford, only a couple weeks before Bun was killed at Iwo Jima. Unfortunately, my grandmother Audie passed away last year. She is buried near Bun in Wolfe City, Texas. If anyone can help, that would be amazing. Thank you all so much.

Hi Kurt,

 

Can you send me the photo you have of PFC Boyd Stanford in front of his LTV A? I have been looking for info on him for a while now. He was my great uncle.

I no longer own the book that it came from. It was a very detailed battalion history about the unit. 2nd Armored Amphibian Tank Battalion,

rsmartin75, I stumbled upon your post and have posted the picture that was mentioned. Also included one of the list of KIA/MIA for the battalion for Iwo.
