I just stumbled on this site and I am amazed at the information in here and thought I would ask for some help in finding information if it’s available. Like others have mentioned my Grandfather was in the Army during WW2 and served in the Asiatic-Pac Theatre. My Aunt just blessed me with my Grandfathers’ service paperwork and I have been doing some research to find out information on him to see if I can figure out the places that he went or the routes he traveled. I don’t know if that information is available, but I thought I would try anyway. My grandfather joined the Army on October 29 1940 in Montana. He served as a Quarter Master with the 1358th Depot Supply Company (Aviation) The paperwork states that his date of Departure was May 15th 1943 but it doesn’t say from where. He arrived someplace in New Guinea June 15th 1943. As I understand it, at some point, my Grandfather and some of the others from his unit drank water from a water hole without realizing it was poisoned. I don’t know how many died from it, but my Grandfather became very sick from it. The paperwork shows that he departed from New Guinea on October 24th 1944. It looks like he was transferred to the 118th General Hospital in Riverwood, New South Whales, Australia based on his Toe Tag information that was dated September 25th 1944. (I was told that he was not expected to make it during transport so a Toe Tag was put on him) He arrived back in the USA somewhere on November 6th 1944 and ended up in a hospital in Spokane Washington where he was Honorably Discharged on March 22nd 1945. My biggest question is from the time that he joined, (1940) to the time he arrived in New Guinea, (1943) where was he? With the war raging in Europe and in the Pacific could he really have been state side for that long or could he have been on another island? Is there documentation available that shows the information of where he was? I never met my grandfather. He passed away in 1967 from complications of what the poisoned water did to his internal organs so this has been an opportunity to learn more about him.
