What is an Ammunition Train Battalion?
The 76th Tank Battalion of the US Army was formed from the 727th "Ammunition Train Battalion" (formed in 1944, ended the war on Okinawa) in 1946. I haven't found a good reference to what this kind of battalion is. In the Coast Artillery, I see references to "Headquarters and Headquarters Battery and Ammunition Train, Battalion, Antiaircraft" but nowhere do I see an Ammunition Train Battalion.
Could this be a typo of some sort? There was a 727th Railway Operations Battalion that served in Europe in 1944. No 727th Coast Artillery anything, though. Kinda stumped.
Edit, of course after I hit "post" I tinkered with my search and found there was the 727th Amphibian Tractor Battalion that was formed at Fort Ord and disbanded in 1946 on Okinawa. That's gotta be it. Typo found, OCD alleviated.
