Dear Sir,
       Thank you for your question.  In it you typed "925 signal company".  The 925th Signal Depot Company participated in the following Campaigns:

Northern France:     July 25-September 14, 1944
Rhineland:          September 15, 1944-March 21, 1945

       In your question you typed "tec-3".  A Technician 3rd Grade was paid $96.00 per month.
       In your question you typed "battles & campaigns show.......WD45 as amended."  Since the Campaigns for the 925th Signal Service Company & the Campaigns listed in Box #32 on page two of your grandfather's Discharge Documents are so different, it is clear the unit listed in Box #6 was the unit your grandfather was assigned to for his return to the U.S.A. and NOT the unit he was assigned to prior to May 8, 1945.  Sorry to type this, but the 925th is not the unit you wish to research if you wish to learn about your grandfather role in WW 2, prior to May 8, 1945.
       The Campaigns listed in Box #32 are quite unique in that your grandfather served with the British in Egypt-Libya, June 11, 1942-February 12, 1943, then with U.S. Forces in the M.T.O. & E.T.O.
       Would you be so kind as to photocopy ALL FOUR PAGES of your grandfather's Discharge Documents, then send the photocopies to me via First Class U.S.P.S.  Please include your e-mail address for ease of response.  After reading ALL FOUR PAGES of your grandfather's Discharge Documents, it would be my pleasure to share with you all the FACTS I glean from the documents.
       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.
