From your remarks, you must know the following, but just in case:
202nd FA BN activated at LA Mnvr. Area, 1 Mar 43; following training, departed Boston P/E, 18 Jan 44; arrived England, 29 Jn 44; arrived France-ETO, 3 Jul 44; arvd. NY P/E, 1 Dec 45; inactivated at Camp Shanks, NJ, 2 Dec 45.
Campaigns (5) :
Ardennes-Alsace Central Europe Normandy Northern France Rhineland
No information as to casualties or casualty rate.
I am curious also, and will followup as best I can.
I belonged to 985th FA BN/Italy, which was also non-divisional, so I know only too well what you are experiencing.

THERE IS AN ARTILLERY HISTORIAN AT FORT SILL, OK.
I WOULD THINK THAT THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN A PRETY GOOD CHANCE THAT THE 202ND FA BN TRAINED THERE.
IF I CAN LOCATE OR CALL UP A SITE, I'LL LET YOU KNOW. OK?
