I didn't know your father and did not serve in his area, but from what I have read about the adventures of the 9th. Infantry Division, he had to have been a brave man to survive.
The 9th. ID was composed of three Infantry Regiments (37th, 47th,& 60th), four artillery battalions (26th,34th,60th & 84th), plus many related units.
Its strength at that time would have ranged from 10,000 to 12,500 troops.
Among other operations, the division arrived in France 10 Jun 44, and crossed into Belgium 2 Sep 44, and entered Germany 14 Sep 44.
From 25 Nov 43 the division was in VII Corps from 26 Oct 44 in V Corps from 6 Dec 44 in VII Corps again from 18 Dec 44 in V Corps again. (this is to bracket his duty assignments)
Commanders in these time frames: From Aug 42, Major General Manton S. Eddy from Aug 44, MG Louis A. Craig (this to bracket his COs)
Campaigns: Normandy Northern France Rhineland * 9-15-44 to 3-21-45 Ardennes-Alsace Central Europe * (his battle wounds in this period)
Casualties: Killed in Action 3,856 Wounded in Action 17,416 Died of Wounds 648 (Right at 200%)
Stephen E. Ambrose in "CITIZEN SOLDIERS" provides this additional information:
9th. ID entered combat 14 Jun 44 Days in combat 264 Battle casualties 18,631 Non-battle casualties 15,233 Total 33,864 % of turnover 240.4
This reference provides many conections to the 9th.ID, and is still in print.
I can pretty well tie down Mr. Angell's activity and awards to action in the battle for the Huertgen Forest area.
The 60th. IR engaged in close-quarters fighting in the Huertgen Forest vicinity... . Severe weather hampered continued fighting by the 60th.IR, which was reinforced by the 39th IR in the Huertgen area.. A road junction was secured on 14 Oct 44, but the division was short of the objective city of Schmidt.
On 7 Dec 44 the division releaved the 1st. Infantry Division in the Luchem-Langerwehe- Juengersdorf-Merode region. It returned to the offensive 10 Dec 44 with the 3rd. Armored Division, moving toward the Roer.
When the Bulge broke out, the division contained attacks 16 Dec 44 towardMariaweiler and Guerzenich.
Thus we bracket the time frames involved in the woundings of your Dad, which surely took place in the (1) Huertgen Forest and (2) just beyond.

I hope this information is of benefit to you and your mother.
