Military History/Information on my father

Question
You responded to an email on 4-10-10 to an email similar to one I had requested about my Father Herman Wilson Good.  He was in the 703rd Engineer Petroleum Distribution Company.  I have found that he enlisted on 1/21/43 in Oklahoma and was living in Seminole, Ok at the time.  He was discharged on 12/8/1945 nad died 12/2/97.  Any information you could give would be great.  Thanks.

Answer
Dear Ms.,
  Thank you for your question.  However, I am unsure as to what it is that you desire of me.  If you wish for FACTS about the 703rd Engineer Petroleum Distribution Company, my posting of April 4, 2010 contains all the FACTS I know of about the unit.  If you wish for FACTS about your father's role in WW 2, then I request that you send to me via First Class USPS photocopies of your father's Discharge Documents.  Without photocopies of your father's Discharge Documents for me to begin my research with, what FACTS do I have to begin my research with?
  If you send to me via First Class USPS photocopies of your father's Discharge Documents, please be sure to include your e-mail address for ease of response.
  Good Luck with your quest.

  Sincerely,
   Richard V. Horrell

Expertise

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.
