Hello Louis and thank you for responding. I have all of my father records including all of his orders, physicals, certificate of service, etc. He kept a very small diary of when he arrived and left different islands. From reading the postings, I am lucky that he saved everything. There are many different veterans name on these orders. I also have battle participation reports.
I have a 26 page report written by the commanding officer thatcovers the field artillery participating in the M-1 operations : Hq&HQ Battery, 191st FA Group; 251st, 472nd and 694th Field Artillery Bn (105 MM HOW) and the 760th Field Artillery BN (155mm HOW) The SIxth Army orders attached these battalions to the 191st FA Group effective upon arrival at the Lingayen Bay on the M-1 Operation.
It includes roster of Officers for the 191st that was current for the M-1 operations, Luzon, Philippine Islands .
The report covers the time that they embarked Jan 5 1945. The 191st FA GP traveled on the USS JAMES ROLPH. On Jan 13 that ship dropped anchor in Lingayan Gulf. It details their activities through April 30 1945 when they completed the Balete Pass phase of theM-1 operations and were heading towards Manilla. I am in the process of transcribing it.
Following the end of the war, my father became the commanding officer of the 191st until he recieved orders to go home.
