Re: Chaplain Willard B Hanson att to 21st Inf Reg, 24th Div
Your dates of his service with 21st Infantry don't match that outfit's time on New Guinea. According to Stanton's Order of Battle, the 21st Infantry landed on New Guinea 22 Apr 44 and conducted operations there until it assaulted Leyte 20 Oct 44. Stanton does not show the 40th Div on New Guinea. Could your dates be off, or could he have been with a different outfit?
