WELCOME TO THE 533RD AAA AW BN MOBILE FORMERLY THE 533RD SEPERATE COASTAL ARTILLERY BATTALION'S OFFICIAL WEB SITE.

THIS WAS A WORLD WAR II UNIT FORMED AT FORT BLISS,TEXAS 15JUL 42 AND WAS DISBANDED 26 OCT 45 AT CAMP KILMER,NEW JERSEY.THEY WERE RENAMED TO THE AAA AW BN MOBILE 15 DEC 43 AND THEY SEEN GROUND COMBAT ACTION IN 6 MAJOR CAMPAIGNS OF WORLD WAR II.
THE UNIT WAS OFFICIALLY CREDITED WITH 10 HITS UPON ENEMY AIRCRAFT DURING THE WAR BUT AS SOME UNIT MEMBERS HAVE TOLD ME THERE WAS A LOT MORE HIT OR DOWNED THAN WHAT WAS CONFIRMED BY THE ARMY.BUT YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT IT WAS WAR TIME AND SOMETIMES MISTAKES HAPPEN ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE MOVING FAST AND CHANGING GUN POSITIONS AND BATTLE LINES,SOMETIMES 2-3 TIMES A DAY.



SOME OF THE MEMBERS OF THE 533RD THAT I HAVE TALKED TO ARE VERY HAPPY AND APPRECIATED THAT SOMEONE HAS TAKEN THE TIME TO START THIS WEB SITE TO HONOR THEM FOR ALL THAT THEY WENT THROUGH DURING WWII.AS THEY WERE TOLD THIS WEB SITE WILL BE KEPT FACTUAL AT ALL TIMES NO MISINFORMATION WILL BE PUT UP ON THIS SITE EVERYTHING HERE HAS BEEN VERIFIED BY ME FROM UNIT MEMBERS AND OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES.




TO ANY MEMBER OF THE 533RD AAA AW BN THAT MAY VISIT THIS SITE I STARTED IT TO HONOR THOSE WHO ARE NO LONGER WITH US AND AS A TRIBUTE TO YOU GENTLEMAN,ALL OF YOU WENT THROUGH HELL FROM 1942-1945 AND THIS IS MY WAY OF SAYING THANKS. IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION OR PICTURES TAKEN OF THE UNIT MEMBERS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEND PLEASE CONTACT ME I WILL POST THEM HERE AND IN THE BOOK.
AGAIN THANK YOU ALL AND GOD BLESS YOU AND TO THOSE WHO ARE NO LONGER WITH US MAY THEY ALL REST IN PEACE GOD KNOWS THEY HAD VERY LITTLE OF IT WHILE ON EARTH DURING WORLD WAR II.
