    Seeking records of Headquarters & Headquarters Company, 1st Engineer Special Brigade

    Chris Parris Newbie

      I’m writing a historical fiction book and I’m thinking about having one of the characters serve with Headquarters and Headquarters (or HQ & HQ for short) Company, 1st Engineer Special Brigade. Why I’m thinking about putting this character in this specific incident is because HQ & HQ Company has the distinction of serving in both Europe and the Pacific (the Battle of Okinawa and the Occupation of Korea).

      I only have a vague idea about what the company did during World War II. But I know the important role that the 1st Engineer Special Brigade as a whole played in the landings at North Africa, Sicily, and Normandy.
