Secret Missions? Naval Station 3964?
Seeking info and procedure help to find record of Storekeeper R.J. Brunton, assigned to Sta. 3149, but temporarily assigned to Sta. 3964 for a "special duty".His official record lists nothing about a secret mission or being captured and tortured by the Japs, but he had recurring violent nightmares when he returned in 1946. He stated that his special duty work was a secret assignment. Other vets I've talked to say if he was a POW, it would show on his permanent record. Nothing in his record says he was a POW or had any special assignment. This was late April, early May 1945. R.J. died in 1992, but till the end he told a story of being in the jungle, working with locals to get info, and getting caught and imprisoned and tortured with mostly sun exposure and fixed body position. Under Freedom of Info Act, shouldn't this be available to us? This is my wife's father. We want to know. We do know that one of the most effective weapon against the Japs in the Phillipines was guerilla tactics and gathering info through the locals. Maybe he was involved in that?????
