The 833rd was activated at McChord Field, Washington, in April 1942, and arrived in the United Kingdom in August 1942, where they were engaged in construction of heavy-bomber bases. The Battalion landed at St. Clair, Omaha Beach on the 30th of June, 1944, then moved across the continent building hospital evacuation strips, fighter-bomber bases, and other high-priority airfield construction.
