Placed under the command of Lieutenant Colonel L. E. Thornton, the battalion completed its basic training at Fort San Houston before moving on 17-18 April 1944 to Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, where 1t undertook its advanced technical training. The battalion sailed from New York aboard the SS Uruguay on 20 September 1944 and arrived in France on 1 October 1944. It participated in the Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace, and Central Europe campaigns of World War II, but was not avarded any unit decorations. After serving on occupation duty in Germany for nine months, the battalion was inactivated there on 10 February 1946.
