Dear Mr. Heidelberg,
       Thank you for your question.  In your question you typed "463rd parachute field artillery" Battalion.  Would you be so kind as to inform me the source that your father was assigned [assigned] to the 463rd Parachute Field Artillery Battalion prior to May 8, 1945?
       In your question you typed "lost his records in a fire in 1973 archives in Kansas city [sic]".  The "fire" you typed of was at the Military Personnel Records Center, 9700 Page Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri, 63132 in July 1973.
       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.
