This Site is Dedicated to the Brave Men who Served in the 821st TDBN

My Father, Ciro Gippetti was a member of the 821st Tank Destroyer Battalion.
He spent his war years with B Company. This site is dedicated to him and all the brave men of the 821st TDBN. I have had the privilege of meeting many of the members and their wives and you could not find a greater group of people anywhere on earth.

For more information please email the 821st TDBN

Website Update 2015

This website was hacked last year around August. We have been rebuilding the site as time allows, so please be patient with us. This would be a good time to thank all of the members of the 821st for all of the sacrifices they made for this great country. We appreciate all you have done from the bottom of our hearts. This goes for all members of the Armed Services, past, present, and future. You are what makes this country great. Only a soldier would give hs life to protect our freedom.

The 821st Poem

Fight on you brave T.D.'s

On lands across the seven seas

They'll sing songs of your heroic deeds

They'll play your praises on pipes and reeds

For every battle you have won

They'll say it was a job well done

And when the fighting is all over

We'll all go home to the land of clover

Knowing deep within our heart

That we really did do our part

A Very Special Thanks to Robert F. Walsh - 821st TDBN
