Re: 82nd or 101st?
I know this unit and have meet some of it's members over the years. The 460th was part of the 517th Combat Regimental Team. They made one jump in southern France during ANVIL and later DRAGOON in the summer of 1944.
He was in charge of the section that ran communications from the fire control center to the various howitzers gun sections.
Do you have the battery unit photograph? I have one but I'm not sure which battery it is.... I'll look.
