I have found out a little more about my father’s service records.Still don’t know what he did.I would really appreciate any help with this.He joined in July, 1943 in Nashville, TN.He was listed as AA Machine Gun Crewman 606; MP 677.I know he was an MP after he went to Hawaii.I thought he was in Hawaii the entire time but was wrong.Father NEVER mentioned anything he did in service other than MP.
