    It appears to be the 3d BN as listed on his paperwork. It is difficult to read, my copy of his Honorable Discharge Form (set up for re-enlistment) is damaged. Over the years I have not found much information about HQ Company so it was surprising to find someone’s else’s participation. Thanks for your previous message. I have a copy of Victory at Peleliu which has only a couple on mentions about HQ Company. I plan to contact the author, he is a friend of a friend so I hope to find out more info. I will post any updates relative to HQ Company..

    I have found very little on HQ company as well other than from briefly talking to Mr. Clift this past summer. I also got to hear a lecture by Mr. Blair that wrote Vicory at Peleliu. Def reach out to him, he is a very nice guy and has a lot of info on the Battle.

    Another good book on the 81st that I recently was made aware of is Breathes There a Soldier. Very good book written from the journal of a soldier in the 321st. Gives a very good picture of Training through the end of the war from a soldiers prospective.
