Ive been trying to research but have been unsuccessful.
its not too hard, you need to know more than just battalion. Knowing the Regiment and Divsion will make it easier.
he was fifth army 194th field artillery group headquarters.... is that what you were referring to?
if so where do i start?
hes here for christmas and i wanted to look at it with him
If so, you have all the information you need right there to search further.
The proper term you want to use is 'order of battle' to find out where they were...
ok here is what I found from about 5 min of searching
34th Division Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment (Iowa)
67th Infantry Brigade, Headquarters and Headquarters Company
133th Infantry Regiment (Iowa)
168th Infantry Regiment (Iowa)
68th Infantry Brigade, Headquarters and Headquarters Company
135th Infantry Regiment (Minnesota, North Dakota)
164th Infantry Regiment (North Dakota) [reassigned to Americal Division]
59th Field Artillery Brigade, Headquarters and Headquarters Battery
125th Field Artillery Regiment (Minnesota)*
151st Field Artillery Regiment (Minnesota)
185th Field Artillery Regiment (Iowa)*
34th Military Police Company
34th Signal Company (South Dakota)
109th Engineer (Combat) Regiment (South Dakota)
109th Ordnance Company (Minnesota)
109th Quartermaster Regiment (Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota)
136th Medical Regiment (Iowa)
* the 194th Field Artillery Regt was formed in 1943 from the 125th and 185th FA and was attached to the 34th Infantry Division in WWII 1943-1945
so all you need to do in follow the 34th ID's OOB from 1943 onward and try and find a 34th ID unit history book or something.
from wikipedia the 34th ID was part of the North African Campaign and the Italian campaign
