You are looking for the 175th Infantry Regiment,
29th Infantry Division.
The 175th IR was inducted into Federal Service from Maryland National Guard, at Baltimore, 3 Feb 41;
assigned to 29th ID, along with 115th IR and 116th IR, and
moved to Fort Meade, MD, 17 Feb 41;
after training, staged at Camp Kilmer, NJ;
departed NY P/E, 5 Oct 42;
arrived England, 11 Oct 42;
assaulted Normandy, France, 6 June 44.
WTS was KIA, 18 June 44, probably while engaged on the advance on St. Lo, France, operating under XIX Corps, where the division met strong resistence from the
German 3rd Parachute Division.
Sorry, but that is all I could find.
Do you have any other profile on Pvt. Savage ???
