His discharge paper will also give his military occupation specialty, decorations and a list of his departure and arrival dates to theaters of operation. If he received the Combat Infantryman Badge he may have participated in the Battle of Attu.I'm not sure how the operation on Kiska Island is regarded.While there was an amphibious assault on the island and there were casualties, the Japanese had already pulled out.Also, as the 3rd was not in the Aleutians he was probably in another unit when he was there.
His arrival date in Europe was probably the 17 or 18 March 1945 if he arrived with the 3rd IR.He could have been assigned to the regiment later.
The dates for No. France campaign ended before the 3rd IR arrived in Europe and may lend to some confusion.There were a couple of port cities on the French NW coast where the Germans were still holding out and the 3rd IR for a short time was assigned as a reserve unit to one those divisions keeping them contained until the end of the war.Those units keeping containment were still awarded participation in the No. France campaign.The 3rd might have been attached to the 66th Division at this time.Sometime in the end of April the 3rd as attached to the 106th moved in Germany to run the pow camps.
