My uncle was in the 280th ECB. His name as Harlin J. Lawrence (deceased). I would like to know what he did in the 280th and what company he as in (I think Headquarters Co). Also, I am looking for info on what concentration camp he saw. He could not remember where it was or what the name was...he was basically passing by when he came upon it being liberated by another Army unit. He was there only briefly but did see the prisoners and recalled how badly it smelled. Can anyone help me?
