843rd Engineer Aviation Battalion (EAB)

The 843rd landed on D + 25 in Normandy, and airfield construction began that day and continued through Normandy, across northern France to Munich, Germany, when V-E Day arrived. This unit was the first to operate on the northern side of Paris, occupying Le Bourget with enemy troops at one end of it. It constructed in whole, or part, 40 fields in Europe.
