My father George Mansel Perkins was a member of the 599th AAA AW BNHQ Battery.He jointed in Laverne Minnesota wnet to Camp Callan for signal and radar in 1943.Then to went to Camp Davis and attended the Rose Bowl while stationed there.He then went to Camp Bliss where they began a journey that went to Vancouver across Canada to reenter US at Buffalo and left US from Camp Kilmer NJ.Crossed on the Queen Mary for 5 days, rotating between sleeping in cabins and on the deck. Arrived Scotland then south to SOuth Hampton where they crossed intoFrance. He says they left the state Dec 9, 1944.They were assigned to the 3rd Army and PattonI have commendation March 30, 1945 from G.S. Patton for period of March 16 to March 18 1945.I also have a commendation from E.F. Adams Colonel 27th AAA Commanding for work in Rhine crossing by the XII Corps. This history is from documents and his written material at the time. According to current recollections they went north of Paris, was there for one day, crossed the Rhine at Opienhiemthen went to Frankfurt, south to Munich and then to Baveria and Brenner Pass.They seems to follow the history of 3rd Army to some degree.At some point after the war he was assigned to to the 489th AAA I hope this helps.I plan to try to post pictures and commendations, what unit history I can find to www.antiaircraft.orgthat has a number of unit histories.It has a little on the 489th but nothing on 599th.Would love any history you might have.
