Re: 69th Infantry Division-World War Two
Good morning from Fort Worth, TX, Morris !!!
The 69th Inf Div was very active during the later phase of WW II in Europe, where it had these overseas wartime assignmemts:
12th. Army Group, 18 Jan 45
Fifteenth Army Group, 7 Feb 45
V Corps, 7 Feb 45
VII Corps, 28 Apr 45
Rhineland15 Sep 44 / 21 Mar 45
(The unit didn't get there until 24 Jan 45, so it doesn't get credit for the full term of this period)
Central Europe22 Mar 45 / 11 May 45
Located at Naumhof, Germant at war's end, 15 Aug 45.
Killed in Action, 341
Wounded in Action, 1,146
Died of Wounds, 42
Stanton's WORLD WAR II ORDER Of BATTLE" includes an interesting combat narrative for the unit.
In answer to your question, "yes" the Fighting 69th. was present and accounted for.
With best regards, Louie Franklin Turner.
