I am interested in the 81st Chemical Battalion as that was where my Father served. Can I get some direction. He was awarded the purple heart but I could not get him to discuss it for anything!!! He was from Fort Douglas Utah and was enlisted from 1938-1945. One of the first on the Beach at Normandy. I have exhausted my resources. Thanks for all the possible help! :confused:

Would it be the 81st Chemical Mortar Battalion? http://www.4point2.org/hist-81-p1.htm#activation

If so, its Veterans' Association can probably help you: http://www.4point2.org/81cmb.htm
