Question
Mr. Horrell,
I just came across a Domain of Neptunus Rex card given to my father T/SGT Jerry T. Johnson USMC placing him onboard the S.S.Sea Pike during WWII. It shows him crossing the Equator on 22 November 1944 at 2300 Hrs. He was in Marine Aviation for 30 years. Do you have any other info reference this crossing.

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.
