Greetings, Tanya Bagley !
You are looking for the 160th Infantry Regiment, 40th Infantry Division, which was inducted into Federal service at Los Angeles, CA, 10 Mar 41, from National Guard units from CA, NV, UTAH.
The 160th IR was one of three regiments (108, 160, 185), plus other elements.
Following training, the division departed San Francisco, CA P/E
23 Aug 42;
arrived Hawaii, 1 Sep 42;
training and garrison duties ;
departed Hawaii, 25 Dec 43;
arvd. Guadalcanal 31 Dec 43;
arvd. Cape Gloucester, New Britain, 24 Apr 44;
arvd. New Guinea, 18 Dec 44;
arvd. Manus Island, 20 Dec 44, enroute to the Philippines;
landed on Luzon, 9 Jan 45;
landed on Panay Island, 15 Mar 45,. which is beyond date he was KIA.
I will give you some additional insight into the status of the division leading up to 29 Jan 45:
The 160th IR and 185th IR landed in the Baybay-Lingayen area of Luzon, Philippine Islands, 9 Jan 45;
consolidated in the Dulig-Labrador-Uyong area;
160th IR took Tarlac, 21 Jan 45;
160th IR forced a bridgehead at Bambam , 23 Jan 45, and encountered
the main Japanese lines in the Bambam Hills;
108th IR sent to the assistance of the 160th IR;
160th IR moved against strong opposition,6 Feb 45.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS BEYOND THE DATE OF HIS DEATH, SO THE
NARRATIVE ENDS AT TIS POINT. I WOULD SPECULATE THAT HIS DEATH TOOK PLACE DURING THE BAMBAM HILLS ENCOUNTER.
Killed in Action, 614
Wounded in Action,2,407
Died from Wounds, 134.
Casualiy rate, approximately 35%.
That is about all I can come up with this time.
I hope that it helps in your search for "more light" on Floyd, whom I never knew, but for whom do feel a strong empathy.
Please feel free to call on me if needed, without charge, of course.
With best regards,
Louie Franklin Turner
