503rd Coast Artillery (AA)
Greetings all... Getting close to Thanksgiving!
I am doing some research on my father. Finally got a copy of his form 100 showing schooling and primary civilian occupation before he entered the service.
I assume, because of war time security, they did not place any info on locations served. I believe he was in Alaska and receiving 'overseas pay' there.
Does anyone have any info on the 503rd Coast Artillery (AA), order of battle, or where the unit served during the war years.
The specific individual name is TEC5 George Benjamin Hursh of Stroudsburg, PA who served with the 503rd CA from 1943 to 1945.
His Form 100 is located at:
if you would like to take a look at it.
