309th Field Artillery Battalion commander?

My Grandfather Bernard Dahlman, served in the 78th during the war, and according to the stories he told me was the driver for the Col. of the 309th Field Artillery Battalion. The Colonel was the husband of my grandfathers elementary school teacher. Of course I never wrote down the name of Colonel and now that my grandfather has long passed I'm trying to preserve every bit of information for his war memoirs. Does anyone happen to have the name of the 309th Field Artillery Battalion commander?

Scott, Are you aware of the Find A Grave page set up for your Grandfather?

I appreciate James L Cooper who has completed much 78th research information on Find A Grave. This link will take you to the page he set up for Lt Col Eber D. Russell.
