Ms Williams, have you looked at the Morning Reports for the unit from V-E day onward? These should include where the unit was on a daily basis as well as transfers in and out of the unit. The ones I have read have documented a unit's location/actions until they returned to the US through demobilization. Hope this is of help to you, joan

Dear Ms. Williams,
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 a journal for March 1945 to 9 February 1946 of the 280th Field Artillery Battalion. It may provide where the unit was after V-E Day. For access to and/or copies of these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at email@example.com.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
