924th Engineer Aviation Regiment

Regiment

The 924th Engineer Aviation Regiment was activated in October 1942 at Richmond, VA, and arrived in the U.K. July 1943. In 12 months the regiment built 28 airfields in England. After D plus 32 it constructed and rehabilitated 47 airfields on the Continent. In the great final drive east of the Rhine, “Stripped-Down” mobile units of the 924th traveled with Armored Division spearheads to rehabilitate S and E fields in advance of the Infantry. These fields enabled the fast moving forces to be supplied by air transport.
