Can anyone help me find these people?
My grandfather served in the 27th Infantry-105 Feild Artillery Battallion (Cee-Vee's?) in the Asiatic-Pacific Theatre in WWII. I have been trying to piece together information for his scrapbook, but am unable to identify some of the people and places in his pictures. I do, however, have a partial list of names that were written on the back of some of the pictures. Some of which may be misspelled due to my deciphering of the aged writing on the pictures. The names I do have are: Roger Q Martin, aka "Shorty," this man was one of his closest buddies from what I can gather, seeing as there are many photos of the two of them together. I also have pictures that bear the names: Cecil Caldwell, Earnest Broughton, Jeff Hogner of Stilwell, OK, Nordquist (sp?), Sgt. Richard Dunn, Lt. Lund, and Jackapeno (sp?). There are also several pictures of him with a man who isn't identified in any of the photos. I know he told me a story once about the tattoo on his forearm (topside, between elbow and hand), he said there are only two exactly like it in the world, that he and a buddy of his got them at the same time, but I do not know what this other man's name is. If anyone has any information on this group of Army men who fought along side the bravest man I know, I would really appreciate any information you could give. I would also appreciate any first hand accounts of anyone who may have known my grandfather in service or been active in the same Battallion. His name is Vern W Bay and he was a Corporal in the Army. Thank you so much for your time.
