Please help locate info ---
I am researching my father's service in the Amry Service Command, Medical Department.He served at Bushnell General Hospital in Brigham City, Utah and Baxter General Hospital, Spokane, Washington.I have a letter authorizing him to visit Canada signed by a Captain Ohl, Adjutant, Det Medical Section, 1979th SCU, Baxter General Hospital.I am trying to recreate 1) the unit lineage back to the ASF for Baxter General; 2) the same for whatever unit he would have been in at Bushnell; 3) any additional info about his service.I have requested info from NARA, however, I have his WD53-55 that shows his unit at discharge as Baxter General Hospital.I also found a website database with service numbers, might have been NARA, but his number was missing.Any help would be appreciated, as he recently died and I am making a display to include unit info, medals, other militaria and the Flag from his funeral.
