John, In your research of WW II Medical Bns, have you come across info on a 71st Evac Hosp in the Phillipines? My great uncle Dale Sylvester Fagan served (drafted) in the Army 1942-1945. He was a Technician Fifth Grade in the Army Medical Corp, and was a ambulance driver in the Phillipines 1944-1945. He can't talk about it very well, but he has mentioned: Phillipines, South Pacific, under McArthur, Bushmaster, Army Medical Corp, ambulance driver, only survivor from his unit ?, doesn't know if anyone from his unit survived. I have a copy of a letter (VIA MAIL stationary) and the envelope (VIA US AIR MAIL) he wrote to his parents. The letter is dated 24 Sept 1944 and the envelope is post dated 5 Oct 1944. The return address on the letter is: From: "a 7 digit # is written here" CPL. Dale S. Fagan 71st EVAC HOSP. APO 704 % P.M. San Francisco Calif.
Would like to find info on what was his unit, what happened to his unit and to him. Not just for the historic value but for uncle Dale (he would like to know if by chance others survived; he keeps referring to his LT.) Any info greatly appreciated. Regards Billie Sue (USAF,Ret,TSgt)
