Hello, Mr. Hall.Your post caught my eye, because I am researching my father's WWII experience, and he also served as a longshoreman in the 206th Port Co. as part of the Ryukyu campaign.I know very little about his wartime exploits, but I'll give you his name and the names of some of his buddies from the 206th on the off chance that one of them may mean something to you. Dad just passed away last week, and I have found many photos from his service days among his possessions.This has piqued my curiosity, and I'd like to find out as much as I can about the contribution he made to our nation's freedom.His name is Thomas F. Meehan , from Brooklyn, NY He trained at Fort Dix, NJ and was stationed in Hawaii before going overseas. Here are the names of four of his buds: J. T. Keel(Jake) from ALA. Morris Tabolsky (Tabby) from NJ. Mike Nash from NY Beamon Medlock (Shorty) from ALA.
Good luck to you in your search, and if any of the above names mean anything to you, don't hesitate to contact me.
