I am not one of the men you are seeking, but I can confirm that the 38th Infantry Division did in fact serve in the Pacific, where it participated in these campaigns:
New Guinea, 24Jan43 /31Dec44
Southern Philippines (includes Bataan), 27Feb45/5Jul 45
Luzon, 15Dec44 /4Jul45.
The division was comprised of three Infantry Regiments,
149th IR, 151st IR and 152nd IR, plus other elements.
Stanton's provide an excellent combat narrative covering the division's overseas accomplishments.
I hope that this conforms to the profile you have developed to this point.
