Žalias velnias" is his pseudonym from the later partizan movement, when he became a very famous partizan commander.
Jonas Misiūnas was a warrant-officer(sergeant-major) of the Hussars, in the time of the Nazzi occupation was a railroad guard policeman in Kaišiadorys. I don't think he was a Battalion commander.
Possible, the commander of the Schutzmannschaft Bataillon 257 was captain Vincas Miliauskas?
