Louie: Thank you for your prompt response. I had come across some of the information you presented on the 106th Div but nothing on the 159th Reg. I appreciate the information that filled in the gaps. The information I have on my father's assignments are from return addresses on letters to family (and departure and arrival dates on his WD AGO 53-55).Don't know if the former is the most reliable. He was in Panama Nov 1942 - Jun 1944 (765th AAA Gun Bn). 253Inf, 63rd Div-Camp Van Dorn approx Jul 1944-Nov 1944. San Diago, CA Dec 1944 - Jan 1945. 159th Inf Camp Swift Jan - Feb 1945. One thing I can't figure out is why in the center of the first page of his scapebook, surrounded by his stripes, enlistment hash stripes, and "ruptured duck" he had the patch for the 36th Div. Must have meant something.Any suggestions on how I might find out if he was assigned to the 36th?
