On August 3d and 4th the advance was continued until the afternoon of the 4th when the Regiment was pinched out in the vicinity of La Metairie.

The Regiment remained in the vicinity of La Metairie until 2000 on 6 August 1944 when the Regiment was moved by motor to Louvigne where it went into an assembly area and was attached to the XX Corps.

On August 7th the Regiment moved by motor to Les Logis Marchis and late in the afternoon was ordered to advance east to the vicinity of Mortain. Enemy resistance was encountered at 2200 on August 7th. From 8 August 1944 to 12 August 1944, the front line of the Regiment was 5,000 yards east of La Ga Hamel. On the morning of 13 August 1944 the Regiment was relieved by the elements of the 8th Infantry Regiment and was then assembled near Notre Dame de Touchet. At 0420 the Regiment began a motor movement to Le Mans, France and closed in the assembly area near Le Mans at 2200. The Regiment remained in bivouac near Le Mans until 16 August 1944 when it was moved by motor to Lierville where it remained in assembly until August 19th.
