    Seeking troop movements of unit after V-E Day

    Rene Williams Newbie

      Where do I go to get movement records of a Field Artillery Unit between V-E day and the time they left to return home?  I do not need any ship transport records. I already have their daily movements from the day they landed at Utah Beach to V-E day.The soldier's file was destroyed in the fire.  His FA was in Glaisin on V-E day and there is a photo of him at Berghof. He was home and discharged at Fort Bliss in 2/1946.  So it appears the 280th F.A. (9th Army) was assigned to occupy Obersalzberg rather than sent to the Pacific. Would there be daily reports of that FA movement between V-E and the time they left Germany?

       

      Thank You.
