Looking for any information on Edward French, active during WWII

I never got to meet my great uncle, Big Ed to everyone back home. I am looking for any information on him as I am trying to put together any information i can find, so that I can get an idea of who he really was.

Here's what I know

- Member of the 78th Lightning division
- Part of taking the bridge at Remagen
- Scout for the 78th
- Originally from Vermont, but he may have moved to Massachusetts when drafted

I think he may have been part of the 310th Infantry Regiment, but not completely positive on that.

Your location (optional): Vermont

Re: Looking for any information on Edward French, active during WWII

A Corporal Edward C. French, from Bradford, MA, served in the 78th Recon Troop of the 78th Division. The 78th Division historian, Stan Polny, may have information on that unit if this soldier was your uncle.
