I sent a request to U.S. Army Military History Institute for a PDF or a hard copy. Will let you know how it turns out.

I gotcha ... I found some good info on the battle and was wondering if some of it might be of use to you, but you probably already have it.

I actually fought with 2nd ACR and 1 ID during the ground war, so it tweaks my interest as well.

I love when the accounts are accurate. I enjoy the actual real documents and hearing what other units were doing while we were doing our own stuff.
