Military History/Queen Mary/troopship departures


Using discharge information/dates . .

What Army units were aboard the Queen Mary sailing September 5, 1942?

What ships departed (Naples?)September 5, 1945 (Dad's return)?

Dear Sir,
       Thank you for your question.  In it you typed "What Army units.......September 5, 1942?"  The 2nd Evacuation Hospital.  Obviously there were other units onboard this specific voyage, I just do not have FACTS about those units.
       In your question you typed "What ships departed (Naples?)September 5, 1945 (Dad's return)?"  I have no FACTS as per a troop ship departing Naples, Italy on September 5, 1945.  Obviously there were troop ships that did depart Naples, Italy on or near September 5, 1945, I just do not have FACTS about troop ships/voyages in question.
       Good Luck with your quest.

  Happy Holidays,

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.
