Re: 11th Armored Group (not Division) info needed

again: thanks. Re ship crossings I know the information which reffers to
the "Marechal Joffre". I already posted a copy of the origin newspaper
clipping on my own site. However, the men of the 6th AD like other
Divisions crossed on several ships; on the "Marechal Joffre", of course,
there were with about 3 Thousend men a main part of the 6th AD. But due
to the point-system a big change had taken place so often the former
fighting men of an origin Division were at the time-point of
repatriation in different Divisons then.
There is a great and very comprehensive web site of the Super Sixth
online, you know. And research results I posted on my own site are in
any way an addition to that, I hope.
But re my question about the 11th Armored Group I need still information
in detail. Hope, it goes on. It seems like I only find out more if
seeking for names likeCol. Charles Calvin Higgins, Commander of the
11th Armored Group (West Point graduate from 1923), died in 1968;
Captain Marcinkowski and Captain Williams. How could I get (fast ?)
information re their personal service records for historical research -
destroyed the great fire in 1973 really all possible sources; alo I am
not sure if seeking for After Action Reports in the National Archives
would bring results because I already asked there for any information re
that Armored Group, unfortunately without great success?
