My father served in the 718th Amphibious Tractor Battalion - Amtrac during WWII. His unit trained at Ft. Knox, Fort Benning, and Fort Ord before. They served first with the XXIV Corps, 77th Infantry Division on Leyte and participated in the landing at Ormoc and capture on Palompon. On Okinawa, they were initially attached to the 7th Infantry Division. After VJ day, the 718th served in Korea as an occupation army.
I'm looking for anyone else who may have served, or had a relative who served, in this unit.
