Dear Ms. Angland,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled Unit Histories, 1943 - 1967 in the Records of U.S. Army Operational, Tactical, and Support Organizations (World War II and Thereafter) ( Record Group 338) that includes a file unit titled 39th Infantry Regiment: Unit History for 1917-1957. We also located the World War II Operations Reports, 1940-1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1917-1981 (Record Group 407) that may include records of the 394th Infantry Regiment, the 60th Infantry Regiment, the 47th Infantry Regiment, and the 39th Infantry Regiment for 1945. Records of lower echelon units sometimes were incorporated into the files of the regiment. For access to and/or copies of this/these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
