    I have my fathers discharge papers. It says here was discharge from the 523rd Ord H M Co. (FA).
    I have tried to research the 523rd Ord, but cannot find anything about it. His campaign in box 32 says Luzon. Can anyone give more information on the 523rd Ord Co? Thank you.

    To directly address your question, the 523rd Ordnance Heavy Maintenance Company was part of the USA's Sixth Army in the Pacific. I'm sure someone will come up with a bit more for you.

    If you can post a copy of his discharge, that will help us to help you. While it may be the case that his main unit was the 523rd, the unit listed on the discharge is often just a unit that the soldier was assigned to in order to be processed for discharge. Seeing the specific information in context on the discharge will help us make sense of it for you.
