Thanx, Louie; Jan. 14, '45 I was back in Hollandia, N.G. awaiting surface transportation back to the States.Boarded the Gen. A.E.Anderson troop ship Feb. 18. Thanx to a merciful God and an ever vigilant Guardian Angel I sailed back under that Golden Gate bridge three years, one month and eight days after leaving.
Incidentally, aboard that ship were the 500 "Ghost Soldiers" rescued from the infamous Cabanatuan POW camp in the P.I. Many had to carried aboard on litters, many were missing limbs and all were malnourished. But thanx to their presence aboard we ate the best chow I ever experienced in 4 years in the service.
