761st Tank Battalion and Allied Veterans Association


Credit: Ms. Margaret Crecy – Second Lieutenant Warren G.H. Crecy standing across the street from Baker Company’s billets in Siegsdorf, Germany, 1945. Crecy holds the Silver Star (it should have been the MOH) and also holds the reputation of being “The Baddest Man In The 761st!” The more enemy fire he received, the harder he fought. He slew more enemy soldiers than any other single man in the battalion. He was battlefiled commissioned in 1945.

    I read the book "Brothers In Arms" and the stories about your grandfathers actions in WWII made me swell with pride as a fellow black man. He was a true American Hero.

    I've seen Pvt.Ryan and Band of Brothers, Lt.Cresy can stand above them all.

    Brothers In Arms is a fascinating book. It should be required reading in schools, and it should be made into a movie. Thanks to the men of the 761st for demonstrating such courage under fire.

    This wonderful man would be my great-grandfather! I didn't get a chance to meet this American Hero however, I've heard many inspiring and motivational stories about him. And after you too have heard the great saga of this man, you will learn that he is truly the "The Baddest Man of the 761st"!

    Daniel Long is right - Brothers In Arms should be a movie. Let's hope Hollywood is listening, and if they do so, hope they don't mess it up.
