My father (then 20 today a ripe age of 82) was a recon NCO T-5 (technical corporal) in the 106th division, 422 regiment attached to the Regimental HQ I&R platoon (Intelligence and Reconnaissance). An intelligence and reconnaissance platoon consisted of 2 9-man reconnaissance squads and a 7-man headquarters section.
Their primary objective was to gather intelligence for the regimental commander. The platoon must operate patrols, man observation posts, and coordinate the intelligence activities of the regiment. They were instructed to not engage the enemy to prevent discovery of their presence.
