Home of the LIBERATORS


         

During the darkest days of WWII, it was the people of our great nation – the mechanics, clerks, farmers, industrialists, lawyers, bankers, teachers, doctors, students – these and millions like them who answered the call to defend the American way of life. Among them were the men of the 14th Armored Division. This site is dedicated to them.
