Dear Mr. Hanson,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the 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 of the 9th Infantry Regiment (INRG), 2nd Infantry Division for June 1944 through May 1945. We were unable to locate specific records of Company L and/or 3rd Battalion of the 9th INRG. Records of lower echelon units sometimes were incorporated into the files of the regiment.
These records are located at the National Archives at College Park. The address is 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD, near the University of Maryland--College Park campus.

Dear Mr. Hanson, it is great to hear about your father and his service in the 2nd Infantry Division. I am a historian from Pilsen, Czech Republic. Members of the 2nd Infantry Division helped to liberate my country at the end of war in May 1945. I am a co-founder of our project "Men of the 2nd Infantry Division", a community of veterans, families and fans of the 2nd Infantry Division in WWII. Our task is to preserve the legacy of all men who served in this famous Division. We are in touch with another son of Company L´s veteran and we have a many documents which can be helpful in your effort. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
I’m seeking action reports for my grandfathers time in WW2. He was in the 2nd division, 9 infantry regiment 1st battalion B company and was in Europe from November 1944 until July 1945. I know he was in the battle of the bulge, but I don’t know much more than that. Can you be of any assistance with helping me access these?
