I am not an expert in these things by any means. But maybe I can help you a little.
PFC - Private First Class
AAF - Army Air Force (at that time the Air Force did not exist as we know it today.)
HQ - Headquarters

Place of Separation should be Fort DIX
He was a Chief Clerk and he entered the service on September 3, 1943 and was discharged on December 17, 1945
CPTO - I'm not sure about that one. Guessing China Pacific Theatre of Operatons
(CBI was the China - Burma - India theatre of Operations)

Probably not much help but I hope it helped a little. Email me if you have more questions. I'll try to help.
