Elvin "Gordy" Gordon Information

Elvin Gordon has passed away at the age of 95 on Christmas Day 2016.

He served in the 78th, 311th Timberwolves, Anti Tank (AT Company) According to 1 of his 3 Bronze Stars.

I am his grand nephew seeking any information related to his service. His Army S/N is 33845700. I served 10 years active duty myself (Navy 2000-2010 OEF,OIF) and am trying to compile information for our family history. We are searching through his personal paperwork and records but I wanted to reach out here in the attempts to find out any other information about him.

Any stories, records, NJPs, promotions, demotions(he liked to drink and fight), etc would be very welcome! He was a hard man and liked to joke around but was meaner than a constipated rattlesnake when the famous "Gordon Temper" was awakened. No greater friend, no worse enemy for sure!

I hope this finds you well if you are reading this!

Cheers,
Cliff Gordon
