Hey so im new to the boards, my name is Adam and i currently live outside of Boston, MA and im interested in becoming a reenactor, more importantly a WW2 US Army Medic. I have a medical background, i work as an EMT, so that would help my impression right?.
MY dad's uncle was a army medic during WW2, he served in the 9th Armored Division in the 2nd Armored Medical Battalion? Does anyone have any info on that Battalion? Anyways i have a wooden ammo crate full of his paperworks, magazines, pretty much everything he could store in it. It even has some German items in it like an Iron Cross and The Cross of Honor 1914-1918 with crossed swords. The one thing that is really cool is that his Red Cross armband and rank chevrons are there. I have a story about my Great Uncle i will post later. its really interesting
So im happy i found this forum, Does anyone have any leads on Units up here around Boston?
