279th Engineer Combat Battalion
Trying to research this unit's WWII history, particularly 1944-1945. Would like to obtain this unit's patch, and those of the larger units (9th Army? 12thArmy?) it came under. Deceased father-in-law (Tec4 LLoyd Robert Huffman, from Stockport, OH) was a member of this unit. I believe he was a truck driver. Trying to put together a shadow-box for his only surviving daughter (my wife). Any help with info would be greatly appreciated. Ed Stack, 2233 Shinglewood Way, Virginia Beach, VA 23456 (757)430-0160.
