Your e-mail caught me in the middle of a "rush job" and I was preparing a response when I noticed your posting. You didn't include the info from your Dad's discharge in your e-mail but that's not important.
Re your reply to Turner: AMEN! The "library" and "sources" referred to consist of three books and a handful of websites (the one dealing with ships' crossings is, I believe, http://hometown.aol.com/troopship/index.htmhttp://hometown.aol.com/troopship/index.htm ). Not much to it but you can check it out if interested (just double-click on the address).
First, what you have is a WD AGO Form 53-55 of 1 November 1944 (or one of its several revisions - the DD Form 214 didn't come into being until well after the war) (I'm not nit-picking; when in Rome, speak Roman - at least well enough to give the other guy a good idea of what you're looking for). Company K was an element of the regiment's 3d Battalion. Your Dad was a member of K/234 at the time of his discharge. Period. Anything beyond that I'll have to access his records. I charge a fee based on my costs and I'll need your Dad's limited power-of-attorney. His individual service record was probably destroyed in the '73 fire at FPRC St. Louis but there's an abundance of other sources, public and private, from which information can be obtained.
If you're seeking individuals who served with him, your best - and possibly only - bet is the division's veterans association:
The association, being a private organization, can only provide info on members, former members or individuals who've been in touch with the association for one reason or another (I'm informed only two former members of the 324th Infantry attended the division reunion last year, which may or may not be significant inasmuch as there may well be a few thousand 324th vets still around that have never heard of the association).
