What are the different classifications?
Does anyone one know how they make the different divisions in the Army?
What comes first? The division, battalion, or company? I’ve looked for charts showing how this is done, but can’t find them.
Also what would the “1st Army” mean?
I am trying to find out information about my grandfather, he fought at Normandy but I can’t ever find his battalion number on any of the web sites (I have his discharge papers showing that he was there, Omaha beach, part of the 146th engineering battalion). I am assuming it’s because I don’t know exactly what I’m looking for i.e. division number.
