This is the history of the Second Chemical Mortar Battalion in the European Theatre. It has been taken from the unit journal and written especially for both the former and present members of the battalion. Though it would be impossible to cover each action completely or go into details of individual accomplishments, the reading of this history, names of towns and places, supported units, and battles will bring to mind individual experiences, gay times, hardships, and tragedies as well, that were shared with old friends and all sorts of events long forgotten in the maze of actions that took place during this period. Herein lies the story of a fresh, inexperienced battalion seasoning into a battle-tested machine ready for any task. It is the story of a new type unit with no precedent working with such determination, ingenuity, and adaptability as to bring only praise for every assigned mission. It is a record covering three invasions and operations under as many and as varied conditions as that of any army unit. Serving under Seventh Army in Sicily, Fifth Army in Italy, the First French Army and Seventh Army in France, and then on through Germany and into Austria, the battalion has compiled an outstanding record that has earned for it six battle participation awards. Through this is reflected the sincerity of purpose of each individual in making a real contribution to the war effort. It is a record of which each member of the battalion may well be proud.
