Searching for information concerning Medical Det assigned to infantry units.Tech 5 John F. Wilkinson, US Army Serno 43276201 was assigned to Company F, 120th Infantry, 30th ID Medical Detachment.He was KIA on 10 JUL 1944 and rests in the American cemetery at Normandy.
My questions: -How were medical units organized?Who were they attached to?The regiment, the company? -How can I find information on what this unit was doing during the time between D-day and his death on 10 JUL 1944? -What was a "Tech 5"?Is this a senior enlisted rank?I assume it denotes he was a specialist of some kind? -Any info on infantry medical units would be appreciated.
