Why would a US Army armored cavalry infantryman have served in two different companies of the same regiment during WW2?


My grandfather was a part of the 63rd Army Division, 245th Regiment, K company and M company.

What would be the most likely reason that he would have served in two different companies?

My guess is that most of the company was killed in action and rather than replenish the company they moved surviving soldiers to other companies.
