Your grandfather served in the 27th Infantry Division in the Pacific, as his papers indicate.
The 27th ID consisted of three Infantry Regiments, 105th IR, 106th IR and 165th IR.
Campaigns listed are:
1,512 Killed In Action
4,980 Wounded in Action
332 Died from Wounds.
The casualty rate exceeded 50%.
I hope this helps to clear the confusion.
Please let me know . OK ?
