Dear Ms. Ottem,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We checked the World War II Order of Battle and the only anti-aircraft artillery unit with the number 413 is the 413th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Gun Battalion. Therefore, we searched the World War II Operations Reports, 1940 - 1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General’s Office, 1905-1981 (Record Group 407) and located after action reports for June & July 1944 and September 1944 to May 1945; a narrative report for 6 June 1944 to 15 May 1945; a diary for D-Day Operations in June 1944; and general orders for 1943-1945 of the 413th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battalion. Many of the servicemen received awards. No additional records were located.
For access to and/or copies of these files, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Morning reports for Army units for WWII are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL), MO. Please contact RL-SL for access to these records. The address is the National Archives in St. Louis, 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, MO 63138-1002 and the email address is email@example.com.
RL-SL also have microfilm copies of most of the monthly rosters from 1912-43 and 1947-59 for Army units. Please be aware that rosters for units serving in World War II from 1944-46 were destroyed in accordance with Army disposition authorities.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
