Good morning, Bill Coffman !
In response to your request, the 190th Field Artillery Division was non-divisional.
The unit is recorded as having arrived England, 1 Nov 43;
arrived France-ETO, 7 June 44 (D-Day plus 1).
The battalion participated in these campaigns:
Ardennines-Alsace, 16 Dec 44 / 25 Jan 45
Central Europe, 22 Mar 45 / 11 May 45
Normandy, 6 June 44 / 25 June 44
Northern France, 25 July 44 / 14 Sept 44
Rhineland, 15 Sept 44 / 21 Mar 44.
It manned tracter drawn 155mm howitzers.
I don't find a casualty statement, but it must have been high.
I am sorry that I can't provide more information, but since it was a non--divisional unit, there simply isn't a lot of recorded history available to my limited access.
I hope that this helps at least a little.
With best regards,
Louie F. Turner
