Nope nothing much new there, although I haven't done a great deal of diggin on the net recently.Spending a great deal of time compiling a CDRom for my boys.(Pix and dox so that they can all get a good gander at what is OUT THERE in solid documentation.)
Some additions and corrections to information you have... 202d Arrived off the Coast of Normandy (Ohio Beach) on 2 July 44, and stepped off the LST on 3 July.They started but didn't finish de-waterproofing due to the tremendous need for F/O's and Arty Fire in the region.Indeed that didn't happen until after St. Lo was taken and they were camped at Briquebeck.

VII Corps until 3 Jul-31 July 44 3rd Army XV Corps 1 Aug 44- 7th Army XV Corps --->somewhere in my documentation...I don't recall the day off the top of my head.
This unit was never pulled off the front lines, while many of the other Arty had been sent back for rest and recouperation -3wks-Spent the Winter of 44 in and around the area of Guisburg France.Liberated I believe by members of the 80th ID whom believed it was occupied by German Soldiers who'd pulled out at 3 am that morning.The 202d arrived a few weeks later and was headquartered in one home.Something in the order of 1000 men were quartered in that small town of 10 to 15 houses tops.(SIC Guisburg France Residential Interviews)Residents were ordered to live in one room while the soldiers quartered in Resd.
Much More to Share.... but will save for another time. Incidentally, what have you been able to locate by means of documentation other than Journal Summaries, Daylies, Adj. Gen. Unit Service Card and mentions in private publications?
