7th Army and ETO HQ question
Posted 02 May 2006 - 08:29 PM
I don't know a whole lot more other than his service number and dates of service.
Could anyone help direct me to the next step in researching this? I have contacted the US Archives and only received the service dates and rank.

By Dec43, still commanded by Patton, consisted of a few skeleton HQ's & service Units.
At this time planning for ANVIL was in place and 7th Army was to command the troops, Mark Clark was to be the commander.
On 14-15 August 1944 7th Army landed in Southern France (ANVIL/DRAGOON)and fougth up the Rhone Valley , joining with the forces landed at Normandy about 14 Sept 1944.
I think your first step is to find his unit and work from there (Try Google!!)

But SHAEF could have allocated units after they linked up so its not impossible to achieve both criteria.

Still no luck so far identifying his unit exactly.
