General Boudinot was born in 1895 and served in World War II. The General died in 1945 and was buried in Section 3 of Arlington National Cemetery. His wife, Lolita Sargent Boudinot (1895-1975) is buried with him. We are actively seeking information about him and his career.Should you have such information, please contact the Webmaster.

Like Combat Command "A", the story of CC "B" is the history of the 3rd Armored Division. Under Brigadier General Truman E. Boudinot, the volatile California horseman, tanker, and one-time army free balloon racer, Combat Command "B" fought many of the hardest and most successful actions ever engaged in by Spearhead" forces. CC "B" totted up a record of successive victories throughout the entire western campaign.

From Normandy to the Elbe, General Boudinot led this big, versatile command to final victory. It was no accident that CC "B" took the first German town to fall to an invader since Napoleonic days. These same dusty, triumphant tankers, infantrymen and engineers, along with their comrades of CC "A" and "Reserve", later led the American First Army into flaming Paderborn to encircle the vital Ruhr area of industrial Germany. During heavy action through the Normandy, northern France, Ardennes, Rhineland, and central Germany campaigns, this crack armored assault force ground ahead against all odds.
