    Seeking records of 460th Anti-Aircraft Artillery AW Battalion


      I am looking for information on the 460th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Automatic Weapons (AAA AW) Battalion. I believe they were part of the 29th Infantry Division.

          Dear Ms. Darling,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled Central Decimal Files, 1940 - 1945 in the Records of U.S. Army Operational, Tactical, and Support Organizations (World War II and Thereafter) ( Record Group 338) that includes the file unit 314.7 460th Antiaircraft Artillery Automatic Weapons Battalion. 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 460th AAA AW BN for WWII. In addition, we located a series titled Command Reports, 1949 - 1954 in Record Group 407 that includes command reports for the 460th AAA AW Bn (1951 and 1952). For access to and/or copies of this/these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.
