I am seeking some technical information on the Harvester Battalion.
In particular more about the IH half tracks that were used while they were in training and overseas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am hoping that someone might be able to help me find information about the Harvester Battalion, and it's history.

My grandfather, Leland Warrick, was an instructor for the Harvester Battalion before they were sent to Europe.

His military records show that he was in:
1st - the 8th AD Main Battalion
2nd - 12th AD Main. Battalion
3rd - 312 Ord. Battalion
4th - then 19th Repl. Depot
5th - finally he was in the 328th Ord. Battalion. (Ex.O 4512)

I have struggled to find ANY info on any of the battalions that he was in, and where they were during difference battles.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

thank you for your time!!

PS: what does Ex. O 4512 mean when found in military records under type of duty??
