Medic - Surgical Technician
My uncle's discharge papers give his military occupation specialty as "Surgical Technician #861".There is also an id card with a large red cross on the back and his picture on the front.
The battles and campaigns were Naples-Foggia and Rome-Arno.
Date of entry into active service was April 20, 1943 yet the departure date to Africa was September 21, 1943.
Did he have to train for surgical technician.....is it the same as a medic?
The discharge papers seem to be complete, but there is no unit, etc., that he was attached to.
How would I get those records?
Thanks for any help,
