    I'm so glad I came across this thread. I believe my grandfather served in this division. He passed away when my father was very young so my father doesn't have a lot of information. My grandmother only shared little details about his life. We have seen a photograph of her at a party at the estate but that is all we know. I know my father would love to know more. Do you have any information on who to contact to see if we can find out more about his time there? Years, his duties etc.

    Thanks for the reply... So sorry it took me so long to respond!

    Information on the 240th Military Police Battalion is very scarce... I know the Hyde Park, NY historical society has a tiny display which includes photos, documents, and artifacts (uniforms, etc.) in their small museum. There is also some information in the archives at the F.D. Roosevelt Birthplace and Presidential Library National Historic Park in Hyde Park, NY. I can contact my unit CO (who is a Park Ranger at the site) and/or the unit XO (who works in the Presidential Library) regarding your grandfather. Do you have any information or documents/ photos from your grandfather's time in the service? Anything that we can use to improve our impressions and research is greatly appreciated!

    Please send me a PM with your grandfather's name and any other information you may have and I'll forward it to my CO/XO!
