Re: 284th Combat Engineers
Greetings from Fort Worth, Texas, Martha Smith !!!
I have an excellent reference source:
"WORLD WAR II ORDER of BATTLE"
by Shelby L. Stanton,
published by Galahad Books, NYNY.
Page 575 has a very short passage on this unit, to wit:
284th. Engineer Combat Battalion.
Activated 17DEC1943 Camp Breakinridge, KY;
inactivated 27NOV1945 Camp Miles Standish, MASS;
departed NYPE (Port of Embarcation)22OCT44;
Boston P/E 26NOV45.
26. Central Europe22MAR45-11MAY45
*presume unit entered
into an on-going battle
Another possible reference would be:
by Stephen E. Ambrose
published by Simon and Shuster, NYNY.
I hope that you and your family will receive this information with the same degree of pleasure as I in providing it.
With seasons best wishes,
Louie Franklin Turner
