hello  Frank


this is the service medals i recieved several years back on my  dad since i was only child  & a replacement flag


.Ok with further reading i have found that  :The 291st Engineer Combat Battalion was one of the most decorated engineer combat battalions of the United States Army during World War II,[1] playing notable roles both in the Battle of Bulge and the Rhine crossing at Remagen.


And Still researching 


Thank you Sir

Check out documentation on the collapse of the Ludendoroff Bridge at Remagen. My father was there with the 1058th PC & R Group and was attached at times to the 291st engineers who were also there. Lots of info out there about 291st. I hired a researcher and he did an excellent job retrieving unit  morning reports stating where they were and when.  Good hunting!
