8017th Composite Services Company - APO - 547 - Tohoku, Japan - 1950
I have an old Menu from a 1950 Thanksgiving Dinner served to the 8017th Composite Services Company - APO 547 - in Tohoku, Japan. The Headquarters is apparently Camp Schimmelpfennig, APO 547 - lists Major Deneer W. Flynn as Post Commander. Would be willing to photocopy for anyone interested. There are many names of personnel listed; here are just a few:
Ladnier, Silveria, Wicke, Chidres, Wettack, Kinnard, Beech, Cleaves, Lowe, Mullens, Rose, Rubottom, Smith (Donald), Silveria, Button, Sanders, Magalong, Krall, Wolford, Sherrow, Sanders, Gandy, Lucas, Sullivan, Eanes, Pallend.....
Locations listed include: Camp Schimmelpfennig, Tagajo, Fukushima, Sendai, Tohoku.
My aunt and uncle, Meta and George (Mac) McCoy, were stationed in Occupied Japan during this period. Mac was a mess cook and Meta was in the Services Division providing entertainment and holiday dinners for the enlisted men.
Please reply to this post if you wish a copy. I can either scan the menu to a .jpg or a .bmp or mail a photocopy.
