187th Engineer Combat Battalion H&S

We are lucky to have these few photos of the 187th Engineer Combat Battalion.

I have been trying to put a face on this unit. Hopefully, this will add a picture of these men. No matter what picture you have in your collection, its really valuable to the story of the 187th. Please donate to the story of your loved ones!
