Question My late boss served as a Tec 4 (Press Control) in Berlin until his demobilization (Conv. of Govt RR1-1 AR 615-365) dated 15 Dec 1944. His Honorable Discharge states that he left Europe on 17 Feb 46 and arrived in the USA 26 feb. 46. I found a website with World War II Troop Ship Crossings, alas without the dates mentioned. Can you advise me how to get this information, because I am planning to write a memorial.
If you need a copy of his Honorable Discharge, please let me know.
Thanks in advance,
Answer Dear Ms.,
Thank you for your question. In it you typed "Can you advise me how to get this information". You may wish to check the daily newspapers for Boston, Massachusetts & New York, New York during February 20-26, to learn what troop ships were arriving at those two ports at that time.
Good Luck with your quest.

Thank you very much for your answer, I never thought of newspapers...I will start with NewYork and work the way down.
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.
