An original period copy handed out to the officers (at least)  of the Timber Wolves. General Allen speaks to their great accomplishments, Holland, Crossing the Mark river, Maas river, relieving 1st Infantry Div in Aachen, the Roer, Cologne, the Rhine etc. etc. Including commendations from Canadian General G.G. Simonds and Lieutenant General J. Lawton Collins who commanded the 7th Corps. The letter has the copied signature of General Terry Allen with his famous phrase “Nothing in Hell Must Stop The Timber Wolves”.


From the family of  2nd LT B-17 Bombardier Richard Fetter. Fetter was assigned to the 92nd Bombardment Group (H) Army Air Forces on August 25th 1944. He survived the war and completed 35 Bombing missions over Europe including Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden, Nurmburg, Cologne and many others. He was awarded the Air Medal with 5 Oakleaf Clusters. It is unknown why Fetter had Timberwolf post surrender documents but he may have been reassigned after he was no longer needed as an active bomber crew member.  Or, perhaps he had a friend or relative in the Timberwolves.
