I'm looking for information on the 10th engineer combat battalion in WWII.
My great uncle served with this unit from Anzio to War's end. Thanks!
Here's the letter I sent back to him:
The 10th Engineer Combat Battalion was a part to the 3rd Division and you can try contacting the following person:
10th Combat Engineer Battalion,
3rd Infantry Division
Mr. Howard B. Nickelson
1209 Bryon Circle
Carlsbad, NM 88220
You may also want to talk to one of the vets I know, Dick Feitz. This is what he has on his web page:
"...Just to explain my sudden interest in WW II: I dug out all the pictures of the Southern France operation when my daughter was assigned there in 1998. One, in particular, got me doing research--the picture of Wilfred Boucher next to his Piper Cub on the beach. A little research identified him for me. We began corresponding and developed a circle of individuals who had an interest in that invasion. It consists of Dutch Schultz, who wrote about his Piper Cub "Janey", Cap't. Francis A. Even, of the 10th Engineer Combat Battalion, who designed the take-off platforms on LST's that were used to launch observation planes, Wilfred Boucher and myself..."
I will send your letter to him this morning and let you know what I hear back.
(I also sent him all the links for the 3rd Division on my site too)
