The 357th Infantry Regiment of the 90th Infantry Division entered France on 10 June, 1944 moving from the Juno Beach-head to the west Contentin Peninsula near St. Mer-Eglise.The 357th was detached from the other two regiments ((the 358th and 359th) who were farther east assaulting Pont l'Abbe.The division regrouped following heavy losses to the Golleville-Urville area.The 90th Infantry set up defensive positions there under heavy fire and shelling.It took from June 12 to June 17th for the Division to pull itself together at this location including participation of the 357th.Pfc. Haas was probably taken during this latter effort.
My father in law, Pfc. Richard A. Hegman was also in the 357th and made it all the way to the Main River crossing (Germany ) where he lost a leg.There is a book entitled "World War II Order of Battle" by Capt. Shelby L. Stanton that has historical sketches of each Regiment.
