100th Infantry Battalion
Military Service: Champagne Campaign
Moriso leaves Camp Shelby and sails for France in November 1944. He is assigned to D Company of the 100th Infantry Battalion.
The 100th has been fighting for 16 months in Italy and France. After fierce battles in the Vosges Mountains, including the rescue of the Lost Battalion, the 100th/442nd is assigned to guard the southern coast of France, a relatively quiet duty known as the “Champagne Campaign.”
Moriso joins this veteran squad as a replacement.
