re: the 834th Battallion especially...
Hi Friends,
New user...Hope I do this properly.
I'm pretty sure that my dad, Raymond C. Erickson, was a Sargeant and cook in
the 834th. battallion...Dad's unit built A-1...and I believe? that the 834th. was the
only battallion to build A-1...first airfield built in France after the D-Day invasion.
Does anyone remember my dad? I think that he was a pretty good cook...and was
a great dad...He said that during the Bulge that they really had to pack the cooking
supplies truck quickly and that they almost got in trouble for holding up the convoy...
and there was a few time when the men had to leave the warm ups on the airfield
before the calesthentics were completed...Said that they had a choice after the War to
go to the mts. in Germany...Bergtesgarten? or the Riveria and he chose R...said he wished
he'd chosen B.
Sincerely,
Ken E.
