Military History/Squad creation question
Happy New Year Colonel,
My Dad did his advanced training at Camp Campbell before heading over to the ETO. Would you be able to tell me when his Rifle Squad may have been formed? Would it have been created during training in the States, or formed after arriving overseas with his Armored Infantry Battalion? Since his whole Division shipped at once, I'm leaning toward squad formations prior to shipping out, but that's just guess work.
Happy New Years to you as well. His rifle squad would have formed up prior to going overseas. Remember, that the whole division was going over at the same time so everyone had to know where they were assigned. May God Bless-Colonel Robert A. Lynn, Florida Guard
