I can't thank you enough; you have found him!He is indeed that Wesley B. Carlile.This is the first info I have for him outside of the letter.I should be able to track him from this.I really appreciate you taking the time to look this up for me and providing all the info.It will be something to add to his story for our family history. My daughter and granddaughter are thrilled.It's unfortunate I had to wait for the service men in our family to pass away before I took an interest in the family history.
I don't know what it would be but if I can ever be of assistance to you let me know, in the meantime I'll pass the kindness on wherever I can.
Now on to HQ., 12th Marine, 3rd Mar. Div., %F.P.O., San Francisco, Calif. then to the South Pacific, (Iwo Jima and/or Guam.)My dad was an Artillery Spotter(?) and then an aide/photographer to some commander; would be nice to know where all these pictures came from.Are there rosters for most of these groups?
Wishing a blessed Christmas and fun holiday for you and yours.
