859th Engineer Aviation Battalion (EAB)

Men | Forum

This Battalion completed a heavy-bomber station in England in time for it to be used in support of the Normandy invasion. Shortly after arrival in France, it constructed an ALG at Luxeuil, the first airfield in France to be built by Negro troops. Since then it has been employed in the maintenance of many fields and the construction of an OAF field near Frankfurt.
