Btry A 237th AAA Searchlight Bn, Radar 268, Antoine Saugrain
Was anyone with, or does anyone know of someone who was with, Btry A 237th AAA Searchlight Bn, Radar 268 during WWII? My father's discharge papers list him as having served in that battalion as a radar crewman on radar set 268. He was in the Battle of Leyte gulf, in Luzon, Hollandia, and New Guinea. He was on the liberty ship Antoine Saugrain when it was hit by a torpedo on Dec 5, 1944 in Leyte Gulf. I believe it sank the next day in tow while in the Surigao Strait. His name was Efrain Ramirez (nickname Ram). It would be nice to hear if any of this information sounds familiar to anyone. Thanks.
