Good morning, Mary Ellison ! Thank you for your informative response. I was aware of the unit having been first in Paris and into Germany, but I failed to pick up their 'firsts' in the Forest and at Remagen. The Battle of Hurtgen Forest was the roughest duty in the entire war, in my opinion. No, mam, my war was inthe Italian Campaigns, North Apennines and Po Valley. Good luck on your pursuit of 'more light' on the 893rd TD BN. Louie F. Turner.
