Dear Mr. Gough,
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 may include general orders of the 2nd Engineer Special Brigade and/or the 532nd Engineer Boat and Shore Regiment. We also located Awards Files, ca. 1944 - ca. 1945 and Records Relating to Awards and Decorations, 1943 - 1946 in the Records of U.S. Army Operational, Tactical, and Support Organizations (World War II and Thereafter) (Record Group 338) that include records relating to awards of the Sixth Army. Since the 2nd was assigned to the Sixth Army, there may be relevant records. For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at email@example.com.
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 research!
