You don't provide much information to research.
I find a 43rd Engineer Construction Battalion, active in the Pacific Theater of Operations, from 22 Apr 44.
There are no campaigns listed, suggesting that this
unit was not in a combat zone.
The 43rd ECB was derived from the 43rd Engineer Regiment
(General Service), which does have a rather extensive
combat history, starting with their arrival in theater
26 Feb 42, and ending 22 Apr 44.
Depending on his tenure with the regiment, he may have participated in three campaigns:
East Indies, 1 Jan 42 /22 Jul 42
Papua23 Jul 42 / 23 Jan 43
New Guinea.24 Jan 43 / 31 Jan 44.
Does any of this coincide with the information you have ?
If so, and if you wish, I will be pleased to forward more information, without charge, of course.
