My father S/Sgt. Claude W Payne

I am seeking information on my father's service during WWII. He was a member of the 84th Infantry Division, 335th Battalion, Company K. His platoon encountered German troops and tanks, and he was reported as MIA on 11-29-1944. He was subsequently reported at a German POW on March 19th 1945, and was returned to US military control on May 28th, 1945. Dad is still alive at the age of 92, but his memory is fading. I would like to document his journey through Europe and Germany in WWII as much as possible, along with the path that his Company followed. Ultimately, I would love to be able to make a trip to Europe to follow his route, including his time at both Stalag A and B. I found your website after doing some online research on the 84th. Any help and direction that you could offer me would be GREATLY appreciated!
All the best,
