680th Glider Field Artillery Battalion - 1945 - Operation Varsity After Action Report
680th Glider Field Artillery Battalion - 1945 - Operation Varsity After Action Report
Captain John Henry FEATHERSTON, Jr., a January 1943 graduate of West Point, was commander of Battery B, 680th FA BN during Operation Varsity. He was killed by small arms fire as he led an assault against a German stronghold that threatened the establishment of a firing position for the battery. The battery history added that after "clearing the houses, [they] discovered the sniper to have been a twelve year old German boy - who will never shoot another American soldier." Captain Featherston was posthumously awarded the Silver Star Medal for his actions. The linked document conveys the wide dispersal of gliders during the assault, the aircraft damage incurred, casualties taken, and the fierce defense made by the Germans who occupied the area of the landing zone. General Eisenhower was able to observe the landings from a vantage on the west side of the Rhine River.

After the war the battalion was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation. It read:
The citation reads as follow :

The 680th Glider Field Artillery Battalion is cited for extraordinary heroism, efficiency, and achievement in action against the enemy during the assault crossing of the Rhine River near Wesel, Germany, on 24 March 1945. Coming in by glider through the heaviest concentration of antiaircraft fire yet experienced in an airborne operation, the 680th Glider Field Artillery Battalion landed widely dispersed in open fields covered by enemy artillery, automatic weapons, and small arms fire, under direct observation from enemy strong points throughout the area. With complete disregard for their personal safety, the members of this field artillery battalion unloaded their gliders under a withering cross-fire, assembled in small groups, and fought their way through occupied enemy strong points and field fortifications to the assembly area, using howitzers, bazookas, grenades and carbines to reduce enemy position. During the assembly, this field artillery battalion captured and destroyed an enemy 105-mm. artillery battery and a 155-mm. artillery battery and captured 150 enemy soldiers. With 19 killed, including both howitzer battery commanders, and 56 wounded during the assembly, the aggressive action of all members of this battalion enabled both howitzer batteries to occupy position and the battalion to assume its artillery mission within 1 hour of the initial landing. One hour later, this battalion had completed its survey and had established complete wire communication within the battalion. Within 5 hours after the initial landing, 9 howitzers were in position and 900 rounds of ammunition had been assembled at the position area. The efficiency and aggressive action of the 680th Glider Field Artillery Battalion in the face of great odds and a defensively prepared enemy, cleared a large portion of the division area and resulted in the provision of adequate artillery support, which assisted materially in the ultimate success of the operation and subsequent exploitation of the gains achieved.
By Order of the Secretary of War

702 Ordnance Company, Second Infantry Division (2ID) (June 1942 - May 1945)
702 Ordnance Company, Second Infantry Division (2ID) (June 1942 - May 1945)
The document lists the bivouac sites occupied by the 702nd Ordnance Company during WWII beginning on 09 June 1944 at Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer, France just inland from Omaha Beach, to 08 May 1945 at Plzen in the present day Czech Republic - a straight-line distance of 1232 kilometers. The eastward journey would be made in 36 segments; as short as 3km and as long as 701km. It does not include the return legs used to reach the French port (Le Havre) from which the 2ID would return to the USA. Those legs would not have included T-SGT John Edgar Scott. He was reassigned to the 799th Ordnance Light Maintenance Company in June 1945 and almost immediately began his redeployment to the USA - an indication of how quickly the Army was redirecting its operations towards Japan - even though some units remained as occupation forces in Germany. Regardless, how T-SGT Scott traveled back to the USA is not certain since the National Archives advised that the shipping records for all unit re-deployments were intentionally destroyed in about 1951.
