Military History/PFC James F. Bunch


Would like to find out how he got to and from Italy in WW2.
Attache is copy of discharge.

Dear Sir,
  Thank you for your question.  As to the troop ship that PFC Bunch was a passenger on sailing to Italy:

Departure Date:   January 14, 1945
Departure Location:   Hampton Roads, Virginia Port of Embarkation
Troop Ship:   USS General W.P. Richardson  AP-118
Arrival Date:   January 25, 1945
Arrival Location:   Naples, Italy
    via the Straits of Gibraltar

As to the troop ship that PFC Bunch was a passenger on sailing back to the USA, I have no FACTS available to me about that voyage.  My apology, I am sorry.
  Good Luck with your quest.

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.
