Good morning, Lori Martin !
I don't have anything for you regarding your father personally.
There were two units bearing the 11th designation:
11th Engineer Combat Regiment, which was not engaged in any campaign, having served in the Panama Canal Zone, starting
13 Jan 40, where it constructed the Quarry Heights command tunnel.
That unit was redesignated 11th Engineer Combat Battalion, 2 May 43, while still in Panama.
11th ECB departed San Francisco PE, 10 Sep 43;
arrived Boston (?);
departed Boston PE, 10 Nov 43;
arrived Scotland, 17 Nov 43;
arvd. France-ETO, 31 Dec 44.
25 Ardennes-Alsace , 16 Dec 44 / 24 Jan45
26 Cental Europe,22 Mar 45 / 11 May 45
