My grandfather, J.B. "Josh" Brown was also in the 21st Infantry,24 Division. He was in the Service Company. He was a heavy truck driver,this included transporting ammo,supplies and troops. He was in the Central Pacific from 1941 until 1943, then he was in the Southwest Pacific from 1943 to 1945. He also contracted malaria during this time. He was in New Guinea and the Phillipines. He also told me once he was in the Christmas Islands. I have been trying desperately to find anyone who was in his unit. He enlisted in June 1941 at Fort McClellan, Alabama.My grandfather passed away in 2001.
