Dear Ms. Henderson,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched National Archives Catalog and located the World War II Operations Reports, 1940-1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1917-1985 (Record Group 407) that may include records of the 406th Infantry Regiment. We also 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 25 file units of the 102nd Infantry Division during WWII.

Jason thank you so much for your quick response and all the great info you provided. Stay safe and hopefully things will open up in the spring.
According to his records my great uncle Benjamin Gentile served with your grandfather. Any information I can come across I will gladly share with you
Bradley thank you so much. Keeping my fingers crossed and I will do the same.
My great-great uncle O. B. Adcock served in this exact same regiment. He was killed in action in Germany on November 17, 1944 and is buried in the Netherlands.
I found his grave info today that listed his regiment and just googled that to see if I could learn anymore about it.
My maternal grandmother was technically his niece but they were only a couple if months apart in age and grew up like brother and sister. I have a couple of photos of him and I have his Purple Heart and would like to learn more about where they were etc. If there happens to be a story about him that would be wonderful, but, not sure there will be any.
My Relative, Sgt. Francis J Murphy, G Company, was killed 22 Nov 1944, he was killed near the Town of Beeck in Germany, if your relative was in the same battalion, then he may have been killed in near the town of Waurichen or Immensdorf.
Jacqueline, where in the US is your grandfather from ? I remember my grandfather talking about his best friend Red … I want to say the Man he referred to was from Illinois?
