I came into owning a picture of all the men of Battery C, 767th FA BN.It doesn't have a date but looks to be from the later part of WWII,most likely prior to shipping out.All the men are wearing 4th Army shoulder patches.
I did a little research on the unit and found additional information as well.
If you want the photo and info send me an email.
This may explain the Camp Breckenridge part.
In WWII, the 767th Field Artillery Battalion was a non-divisional unit, i.e. they were not attached to any particular division, but were part of either a corps or army artillery pool being 1 of 71 155mm How BNs. The 767th FA Battalion used self-propelled (i.e. tracked) 155mm guns probably mounted on either M12 gun motor carriages or M40 GMC carriages.They left New York on 02/27/45 and arrived late in the ETO, not disembarking in France until 03/11/45. Their time in Germany qualified personnel for the Occupation Medal w/Germany Clasp. They re-embarked at LeHavre, France, aboard the Lincoln Steffens on 07/27/45 (28 officers and 478 enlisted men shipment #10106-K) and arrived back in Charleston SC on August 7th, 1945.
Some of the men came as a reassignment from Coastal Artillery units: “The movement of elements of the 52nd to the Pacific coast did not stop with the 1st Battalion. On the heels of the orders sending the 1st Battalion to Hawaii, came orders on December 16, 1941 for Battery "E" to move to the Harbor Defenses of Puget Sound. The following day the orders were amended and two of the battery’s four gun sections of the battery were ordered to Manhattan Beach, California to man a battery of two new MKVI Navy guns mounted on Army type M1A1 Railway Carriages. These two guns were emplaced at Manhattan Beach, north of Fort MacArthur. This detachment of Battery "E" served in the Harbor Defenses of Los Angeles until May 1943, when it was redesignated as Battery "A", 285th Coast Artillery (Railway) Battalion. On March 30, 1943, the battery was redesignated as Battery "B", 285th Coast Artillery (Railway) Battalion. Battery A of the 285th was transferred from Fort MacArthur to Camp Breckinridge, Kentucky in the Spring of 1944, where it was inactivated and its personnel reassigned to 764th, 765th, 766th, and 767th Field Artillery Battalions all of which were 155-mm Tractor Drawn Howitzer outfits.”
