My Grandfather was assigned to the 492nd Port Battalion, 230th Port Company during WWII. I was wondering what Army unit patch did they fall under? I can never seem to find this information no matter how long I research. Is it possible that they were assigned to a Naval or Marine unit? Let me know if you can. Thanks!
