Dear Ken, Thank you very much for the information. I do have some of the information on his seperation papers. Arm or service: ACComponent: AUS Organization: 770th Bomb Sq. Military Occupational Specialty and No; Ammunition Non Commissioned Officer 505 Military Qualification & Date:(ie,infantry,aviation and marksmanship badges,etc.) Marksman Carbine 23 Nov 43 Battles & Campaigns: Air Offensive Japan GO 40 WD 45 India Burma China Defensive, Central Burma Offensive GO 33 WD 45 Service outside continental U.S. & Return: Destination, European African Middle Eastern Theater
Some of this makes sense to me, but not all of it. I don't understand the letters and numbers for one thing. If this makes sense to you, could you explain it to me? I hope I'm not taking advantage of your good nature in answering my first request. I just want to get to know as much about my Dad as possible. I never knew him, as he died in a car accident when I was only two years old.
Thanks again for your help and your time. Sincerely, Betty email; firstname.lastname@example.org
