    Seeking after action & morning reports of 394th Infantry Regiment

    James Wilson Newbie

      I am looking for morning and after action reports of Company B, 394th Infantry Regiment, 99th Infantry Division from 1944 to 1945.

          Army Morning Reports for the WWII era are located at the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis.  That's the good news.

           

          The bad news is that they have not been digitized.  They are on microfilm, and can only be accessed at the NPRC Research Room.  You have to (1)  Look on an index microfilm and find the roll that the wanted records are on, (2)  Fill out a form requesting that roll, (3)  Wait patiently for the staff to retrieve the roll from the stacks, (4)  Put the roll in the microfilm reader and "crank the handle" until you find the unit you're looking for, and (5)  Push some buttons to print the pages you want.

           

          If you're not going to be in St. Louis, you can hire a researcher to do that work for you.
