391st Armored Field Artillery Battalion

Question

I'm seeking information concerning the activities of the 391st Armored Field Artillery Battalion during World War II. I've read the "Combat History" of the battalion and "Spearhead in the West," the history of the 3rd Armored Division, of which the 391st was a part, but I'm seeking still more specific information. My uncle was a tank driver for a forward observer in the 391st, winning two Bronze Stars, and I'd like to discover the wording of the citations. But the St. Louis fire destroyed his records and those of thousands of other Army personnel. Any help would be appreciated.

A quick Google search came up with these three docs:

391st Armored Field Artillery Battalion in support of 3d Armored Division, Roer to the Rhine, 26 Feb - 7 Mar 1945

http://cgsc.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/ref/collection/p124201coll2/id/111

Battle history of "A" battery, 391st Armored Field Artillery Battalion; Third Armored (spearhead) Division, first United States Army, 24 June, 1944 to 24 April, 1945

This digital library has the full combat history of the 391st:

But I have no idea how you can obtain that, as you need to login through a partner university. Maybe you can give them a call?
