Your grandma's mention of "Ardennes Forest" is a possible clue that your grandfather was not with the 84th Infantry Division during the combat phase of the war in Europe. She may have been referring to the battle of the Hurtgen Forrest. If so Edward Vogel could have been serving in any number of American units that were deployed there. If that was the case he could have been assigned to the 335th Infantry, 84th Division during the Army of Occupation, Germany as the division was staffing up to provide transportation home. If so Companies H and K of the 335th Infantry would be cited on his discharge papers. That could account for his not being listed in the division roster as that reflects only soldiers serving during combat.
Suggest you send your information to me via eMail and I will pursue it further. Units involved in the Hurtgen Forrest are listed in this and other web sites. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Hürtgen_Forest
