Mr. Horrell;

My father (who recently passed away) served on the SS Marine Devil toward the end of WWII.  I am wondering is there information on where the Marine Devil took port during its deployment?  I know my dad talked about time in the Mediterranean sea and passing through the Suez Canal and other stops.  I am just wondering if there is some record of the port of calls that the SS Marine Devil made.

Thank you in advance

Dear Mr. Kettner,
       Thank you for your question.  In it you typed "if there is some record of the port of calls that the SS Marine Devil made."  I can provide you with FACTS for 17 of the war-time voyages of the SS Marine Devil.  Please send me a letter via First Class U.S.P.S. with your mailing address & e-mail address.  It would be my pleasure to provide you with the FACTS you desire.
       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.
