Thank you. I knew those dates. My father was there almost from the beginning and then joined with 6nd Troop carriers in France and was with them until he was honorable discharged at the end of the war. Thanks again for your response. I'm basically trying to find someone who might have known my dad or may have a collection of records with lists that might have his name on them. I know I'm really late with asking questions about my father because we are losing so many of our WW II vets now.
