Hi I have been researching the career of my Uncle who also served in the 1395th Eng Cons Battalion. I would love to see these photos if at all possible. I'm new to this site so I'm not sure how I can do this and I'm keen not to put up my e-mail address. Any help on how to make contact would be much appreciated.

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.
