Hello, lately ive been researching one family member his name is Raymond E Naughton he was Pfc in Company A 743rd Tank Battalion and was a tank driver he participated in D-Day landings after the he was wounded on the Siegfried line and recovered in a hospital in France. He was later killed in action January 22nd 1945 at the Battle Of The Bulge when the tanks were stopped in a minefield and Raymond Naughton's tank was hit with artillery that went through the armor and killed him instantly the other crew members got out safely but were wounded by artillery while running to near by houses/buildings. I would love to find more information or pictures on him i would greatly appreciate you guys help so far i have one picture of him that is from a digitalised newspaper. and some newspaper articles

Hello, So today I found a bunch of WW2 photos of my great grandpa. In a few photos theirs this guy with my great grandma and great grandpa in uniform. Do you think he looks similar to the bottom photo? Because I think he may be my Great Grandpas brother KIA at the Battle of the Bulge. I see some similarities. His name is Raymond E Naughton and I’ve been trying to find a photo of him for months and would appreciate any help. The Photo of Raymond is the newspaper one1bbdf48e72de1e2cb9779833f1162b0b.plist

I can't say for sure, but I think theyre the same person. The nose and mouth shape look spot on. And it would make the most sense if it was your Great-Grandfathers brother in those photos.
