ANSWER: Dear Ms.,
       Thank you for your question.  Attached are all the FACTS as per voyages of the SS Westminster Victory.  Certainly there are more, but I have so far been unable to obtain additional FACTS.  
       May I suggest you contact:

to learn if they have a Cruise Book for the SS Westminster Victory.  Each ship had a year book format Cruise Book, to be published annually or for the entire time the ship existed.  
       I wish to be sure, the unit in question is the 9222nd Technical Service Unit, Transportation Corps?  If not, please correct me.

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.
