Hi Elliot, were you looking for anything specific? I might have something in my files about these serials. Joan
Looking for any After Action Reports on the Elmira Mission.
Hi Elliot, have you looked into the AFHRA files? There are a number that discuss the D-Day invasion, with some mention of Elmira. Please contact me if you do not already have these. Thanks, joan

Dear Mr. Schneider,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the World War II Operations Reports, 1940-1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office (Record Group 407) and located files pertaining to the action in Normandy during Operation Neptune/Market for 6 June to 8 July 1944 of the 82nd Airborne Division. None were specifically marked as Mission Elmira or Chicago or Detroit but they may be mentioned in the files.
The staff of the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) will be pleased to make the finding aids to these records available to you or your representative in the Textual Research Room located 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD, near the University of Maryland--College Park campus.
