    Seeking records of the 2nd Armored Amphibian Battalion

    Francisco Abril Wayfarer

      This unit was formed in January of 1944 and was disbanded in November 1945.  It saw action in Saipan, Tinian and Iwo Jima.  I have been able to find the following docs so far:


      Action Report and Operation Plan during their operations on Iwo Jima

      Special Action Report for Saipan, and an Operation Order for May 12, 1944.


      I am wondering if more records can be found besides these... any communications or documents at the battalion or even company level.  I think some info pertaining to this unit might be found.  This unit was usually attached to other units during the initial stages of the battles, so maybe some docs might be inside the records of other units (and not indexed...).  Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated!
