9th Infantry Division
– Company Morning Reports –
This 9th Infantry Division in WWII Research Group started a project to obtain all the Company Morning Reports.
I want to make these available to families upon request as well.
What are morning reports?
These morning reports are unit records that were filled out each day to reflect changes in duty status for personnel assigned to the unit; such as, gains, losses, leave, transfers or promotions. The entries show the name of service member, service number/ ASN, and rank. Also shown are dates, unit strength, the location of the unit, and sometimes a Record of Events.
A morning report presents a soldier’s name on the report if his status has changed from the previous report. For example, from present for duty to ordinary leave, or from present for duty to sick in quarters, or from sick in hospital to present for duty, or promoted, or reassigned.
In this overview we present the 3 regiments of the 9th Infantry Division. We want to start collecting the reports for all companies for these 3 Regiments for the months of May to December 1944. More will follow later. I will mark the companies and months we have the reports for as soon as I get them in. The project will start once the National Archives open again.
