I found a couple of photos that might be of interest to you. The first is my dad with a couple whom I believe to be his host family. The names on the back appear to be Sterri and Fraigaret? dated July 1944. The other picture is which I assume is a tank recovery vechile and on the back is written "$65,000 worth of truck & trailer". Stamped on the back is 'PASSED BY ARMY EXAMINER' so I presume he sent them to my mother. I am sorry the picture is so small, I hope you can make out the markings on the door.
