My brother, LaVerne Day, was a member of the 788th AAA btn, battery D and fought with Lt Col Frank Sack, commanding?  They came home aboard the Marine Robin from the French port of Marseilles, I believe.  He was discharged from Fort Ord CA in Seprember 1945.  I have much info on this unit if you are interested

Yes, I am VERY interested in any FACTS you would care to share with me.

1)   The name of the troop ship that transported the 788th AAA Automatic Weapons Battalion overseas in August 1944.

2)   ALL THE DATES typed in Box #36 on page two of your brother's Discharge Documents.

Thank you so, so much for your generous offer of time & FACTS.

Can answer: World War Two. Specifically, the troop transport ships that took US Military Personnel overseas & returned them to the US, 1941-47. Also, unit history of US Army QM, Signal, MP, Ordnance, Medical, Transportation & Engineer units that served during WW 2. The more obscure units are my specialty. If you have the APO that a Veteran sent letters from or received letters at, I can look up the history of that APO.
