|Comment||Hello Richard and thank you for your reply. I want to tell you that my father'd participation in WWII is a mistery I am tryin to decipeher. He never ever talked about it and not even my mom knew he had served. He was 18 y/o when he went and none of us, including my mother, were in yhe picture yet. Regarding your inquiry about my father being drafted or a volunteer, I believe he was not drafted but am not sure. We are Puertor Ricans and he was living in Puerto Rico at the time. I know that for WWII lots of Puerto Ricans volunteered, especially people from the countryside, as my father was. Tomorrow I will send you a copy of the documents and will also send you a scanned copy to accelarate you receiving them. The 3-4 pages I have are not good quality as they are copies of carbon copies. A friend of mine explained to me that at the time they wpuld have 1 typed page and 3 carbon copy pages. The further one would go with the pages, the worse the printing. Anyway Richard, thanks a lot and I hope you are able to find more information about my father's military service. Regards, Noel Carmona|

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.
