Im aware of the organization of ww2 ranger battalions being attatched where needed and moved around. I was reading about Bobbie Brown and the battle of crucifix hill near Aachen. His company and a Ranger Platoon initiated the assault. Searching I found that Terry Allen developed Ranger Platoons within the 1st. Can anybody offer any information on this ? It seems that Allen had an organic platoon within his TO&E. But I cant find that list anywhere. Were these men who were tasked with ranger missions or were they selected men in the divison who received ranger training then returned as permanently assigned men ? Im trying to make a formal connection with the 'official' Rangers and this reference to a single platoon of 1st infantry div. Rangers. Thanks.
