Hello all, I am new here but have been lurking about for 3 or 4 years. I have been slowly tracing my Grandpa's foot steps across Europe and it has been a long journey for me. I spent most of my life believing that he served with a Combat Engineer Battalion, when in fact he was Combat Infantry. He was absorbed as a replacement by the 2nd Infantry Division in September 1944 in a staging area just outside Brest, France. He served with the 9IR, 1 Battalion under the command of Lt. Col. William D. Mckinley. I look forward to talking/sharing stories and info with all of you.
