The "Red Diamond Division" you refer to is the 5th Infantry Division. Since there's only a "possible connection", I won't elaborate.

You can contact the division's veterans association, THE SOCIETY OF THE FIFTH DIVISION, through their website at

Perhaps they can determine whether he did, in fact, serve with the division and, if so, provide his unit and/or put you in touch with someone who served with him.
(A member is offering reprints of the division's World War II "yearbook". See website for details.)
