Answer
Dear Mr. Evans,
       Thank you for your question.  Also, THANK YOU for referring to me as "Mr. Horrell".  Good manners NEVER go out of style.
       In your question you typed "Howw can I obtain a list of people aboard the USAHS Jarret [sic] M. Huddleston?  I have reason to believe my grandfather was on the ship."  Since this was a US Army Hospital Ship, was your grandfather onboard as a patient or a member of the crew/staff providing services to the patients onboard?  
       In your question you typed "It is a wonderful thing you are doing with your expertise!"  Thank you, you are most kind.
       Good Luck with your quest.

  Respectfully,
   Richard V. Horrell

Expertise

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.
