Is there a roster of Co A tenth Inf Battle at Ardennes 44-45?
I searched for a roster of the 10 Infantry and the 10th Armored Division in the Battle at Ardennes/Alsace. I could find notations about them but no roster. Perhaps you should contact the 10th infantry or 10 Mountain Infantry at their website or consult the Oxford Military History Companion.

Answer . Some companies posed for formal group photos prior to shipment overseas. These are very large format photos that are 20+ inches wide. If you contact a veterans org…anization that is associated with the 3rd Infantry Division or the 15th Infantry Regiment , they may be able get a copy of one of these.. I've attended veteran's reunions and the Vets will bring some of these group photos to show.. Also, I might recommend the unit history of the 3rd Infantry Division. I just bought a re-print of this book but have not received it, so I can not tell you if it contains such photos. The original edition may sale for $80 or more. However, it has been reprinted and should sale for $50. I bought my copy on eBay. See the website for the printer, Battery Press of Nashville.. References: www.baterypress.com. Custermen
Answer. Tec 5 = Rank Tech 5 was an enlisted rank who wore 2 stripes with a "T" that designated a technical rank.. co f = Company F . An Infantry Regiment consisted of 12 …companies, divided into 3 battalions. Company E, F, G, H would be in the 2nd Battalion.. 328th Inf = 328th Infantry Regiment of the 26th "Yankee" Infantry Division. This unit fought in France and Germany.
The Battle of Ardennes is also referred to as The Battle of the Bulge. The Ardennes Forest is in France and Belgium. It was the last major offensive of the Germans in World …War 2.
The Germans did not report casualty totals for the battle, so precise numbers are impossible. Based on the number evacuated to the east during the relevant period, who were p…robably almost all wounded during the battle, the inference can be drawn that the German casualty totals were approximately equal to the American. The Americans had over 10,000 killed, over 47,000 wounded, and over 23,000 missing or captured.
The Allies were victorious!
Both sides suffered high casualties, but the Germans used superior tactics and the French army broke and retreated in disorder.

Yes Edit: Morning reports and rosters for infantry companies are in theNational Archives. You can contact them (nara.gov) and ask verynicely, and if you are extremely lucky a…nd your request is assignedto a knowledgeable person who feels like exerting the effort, youmight get them to send a copy. You'd want to narrow the date range,because there were changes to the roster of a company almost daily.Typically, this is the sort of information you have to ferret outyourself with an in person visit to the Archives. From the archivesyou can also request, using the form obtainable from their website,the personnel records of individual soldiers. These areconfidential for seventy-five years after discharge, but if you setforth some good reason for asking, such as the records requestedare those of a family member, they will send them. Sometimes theycharge a fee for copying. The 10th Infantry was one of the threeinfantry regiments in the 5th Infantry Division. Probably every USdivision, and some regiments (which were smaller subdivisions)published histories right after the war, usually through theInfantry Journal Press. These are long out of print, but can befound from time to time on eBay, not inexpensively though. Somehave been reprinted by Battery Press, of Nashville, Tennessee.However, typically these unit histories will not include a rosterof every man who served in the unit. There is usually a Roll ofHonor of those killed, and often a list of those who weredecorated, and those lists usually mention the company assignmentof the individual soldier. But, once you have nailed down the datesthe person you are researching was with the unit, these unithistories offer the best easily accessible source of detailedinformation about the day to day operations in which thatindividual took part. Much easier than seeking out After Actionreports by company officers, which again usually has to be done inperson at the National Archives. Most of these unit histories relyextensively on and quote verbatim from those After Action reports.Company A was one of the three rifle companies (also called line,or letter companies), A, B and C, which with Heavy Weapons CompanyD made up the 1st Battalion of the 10th Infantry. (Shorthand: A1/10). If you're researching a family member I urge you topersevere. The ffort will be worth it. Best of luck.
