Yes, he only fought with the 66th for three months, from Feb. 45 to the end of the war and was released from service in December. From June 44 to January 45 he was with a different unit and fought through the Normandy, Northern France, Ardennes and Rhineland Campaigns where he was wounded and sent back to france. (His Purple Heart isnt on there, I recently had to send a records correction to MPRC) and his Bronze Star came on a different set of papers. ANyway after he was wounded he was sent to a field hospital in France and after recuperating was reassigned to the 66th. My guess on the rifles would be that since he qualified with all three he probably ended up landing in france with the Garand since every documentary, movie and picture I have seen of troops landing in France in 44, they are all carrying the Garand. Havent seen any of the other rifles. As for their Occupation duty, that lasted only a few weeks. They were then sent to Southern France and set up as an admin division and prepared returning units for the invasion of Japan doing physicals, training, and recreation. They had set up swimming beaches, movie theaters, hospitals, training areas, ranges, and everything else that it took to prepare 500,000 men for more combat.
