Hello ! I'm new to this forum and am hoping to be in contact wih anyone that has any information on the 344th Engineer Battalion. My father was attached to the "344th" in Arzew Algeria on 1 September 1943 as Company C commander (originally landing in Oran on 1 April 1943 being attached to the 384th Combat Engineeering Battilion). 1 July 1939 was his initial date of entering the army as a 2nd Lt. (1st. Engineer Battalion, 1st. Div. assigned to Company C and had proudly served his country for 30 years. My dad has passed away for almost 5 years now and I recently came across an interview with one of my sons (a school project) just weeks before he died. I learned more about what he was involved in from that interview than what he was willing to talk about for all those years with myself and my brother.... He served overseas for 30 months from North Africa to Italy to France to Germany and Austria, and sailing back to the states in October of 1945. just wondering if anyone has any information on this unit or has any one who may have served with the 344th. Thanks in advance for your help !
