787th Field Artillery Battalion

Posted May 29th, 2018 at 12:43 PM by William Lee

I am seeking information on the 787th Field Artillery Battalion (8" Howitzer) during World War II. Specifically, I would like to know where and when the 787th was organized and when and where they entered the European theater and the journey they made to Germany. My father was attached to Battery B of the 787th but unfortunately his military records were destroyed in the 1973 fire in St. Louis. Any information would be gratefully appreciated.
