    Seeking General Order No. 76, 83rd Infantry Division

    Charles Daly Newbie

      I am seeking General Order No. 76, 83rd Infantry Division, dated 22 April 1945. My father was awarded a Silver Star that month, and he never wanted to talk about it.

          Dear Mr. Daly,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located World War II Operations Reports, 1940-1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1917-1981 (Record Group 407) that includes records of the 83rd Infantry Division and possibly the general order authorizing your father’s award. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.


          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.


          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
