Unknown unit Korea, 5 campaigns, Meritorious Unit Award in 6 month between 1947 and 1951 506th MP County Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, USA 6th Armored Division

The 6th Armored Division left Fort Chaffee, participated in the Louisiana Maneuvers, and was then sent to Camp Cook, near Lompoc, California, for desert warfare training. The division moved by train from California to Camp Shanks, New York. They sailed from New York on the THEODORE ROOSEVELT and arrived in Glasgow, Scotland in February 1944. The division was spread over a large area in England with battalion sized elements camped outside the various small towns, training for the invasion of France.

The 6th Armored Division landed at Omaha Beach on July 19, 1944 and was positioned to take part in the “breakout” from the Normandy beachhead. Technical Sergeant Bob Harwood was the senior man in 3rd Platoon, Company C, 44th Armored Infantry Battalion. Harwood's platoon was 100% mobile, with all squads mounted on halftracks. Third Army broke through the German lines on August 1st, and while the rest of the Army fanned out to the south and east in pursuit, the 6th Armored Division was ordered west on an independent operation to capture the large seaport of Brest. On August 8th when the 2,500 man Combat Command of 6th AD closed up to the approaches of Brest, they ran into 90,000 Germans (rather than the 5,000 that intelligence reports had estimated). The German coastal artillery had been repositioned for land defense and they knocked out every vehicle in Bob Harwood’s column, inflict­ing many casualties. “We ran up and down the hedgerows to get away as the ammunition in our vehicles was exploding.”

General Patton ordered that Brest be bypassed, so 6th Armored Division redeployed to the southwest around Lorient. For the next three and one-half months the 6th Armored Division was on the offensive moving east across France.
