Hi, This is my first post on here, but I've been a WW2 nerd basically my whole life but recently have gone down a rabbit hole trying to track down information to piece together my grandpa's journey through Europe in WW2. I've always known he was in a tank destroyer battalion but beyond that I didn't have much information until recently when I started to dig deeper into his service record. Below is the information I've been able to figure out so far. Name: Howard Neeley Pre-war he was in the Iowa National Guard with the 185th F.A. (HQ Battery). With the mobilization of 34th I.D. (Iowa National Guard) he was sent to Camp Claiborne in Louisiana. Found out with the help of tankdestroyer.net I found out that a lot of the guys from the 185th F.A. battalion were transferred into the 634th TD battalion. Which lead me to the 634th TD's dedicated website. However, digging through the company rosters, photos and other miscellaneous documents I wasn't able to find anything that listed his name. I also think he did some training at Fort Hood after being at Camp Claiborne, prior to his deployment to Europe. From a photo I have I know he was a staff sergeant by the end of his time in Europe. Not 100% sure but fairly positive he was a radio operator. There's a possibility the unit roster on the 634th website aren't complete lists and that's why I'm not able to find his name on any of the unit rosters. I'm also thinking it's possible he randomly got assigned to a different TD battalion because based on a big unit picture I have of his HQ battery in the 185th F.A. of the Iowa National Guard I'm not able to find very many of the men in that picture listed on the 634th company rosters. This leads me to think that maybe 20-30 guys from that unit were transferred into the 634th and others were randomly assigned to help fill out other TD battalions. I also know he wasn't involved in the Africa Campaign or ever in Italy. That helped me to exclude the TD battalions that were in Africa and Italy. I'm not sure if there's any other TD units that pulled a significant number of guys from the Iowa National Guard unit he was with, or guys were just randomly assigned to units as needed. Any additional knowledge or insight would be greatly appreciated! Additionally even though I don't really have any more information on this if there's any questions I could possibly help to answer to piece this puzzle together don't hesitate to fire them my way.
