    Seeking a personnel roster of 102nd Infantry Division

    George W. Famous Newbie

      I am looking for a personnel roster for the 102nd Infantry Division in France after Sept. 11, 1944. Where can I find that information?

          George,

           

          Have you tried any groups or unit associations? Most rosters from that Time period were destroyed according to the Army Disposition Schedule in I believe 1950. You may find rosters pertain to shipping and other hidden among the Morning reports most units are hit or miss.

            Dear Mr. Famous,

             

            Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

             

            Copies of most of the monthly rosters from November 1912 - 1943 & 1947 - 1959 and morning reports from November 1912 to 1959 for Army units are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis, MO. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL) via email at stl.archives@nara.gov. Rosters for units serving in World War II from 1944 - 1946 were destroyed in accordance with Army disposition authorities.
