    After my father returned to the USA he was given a 90 day furlough and ordered (Special Order 324) to report back. The Order listed him under Hawaii and noted ARM was TC. Following this order, Special Order 83 was issued directing him to report 10 APR 46. The following wording is what I need help with: "TFN EM, Atchd unasgd RA 5th BN (RC) 1322d SCU, WP organs named below o/a 26 MAR 46, reptg to the CO thereat for asgmt before midnight on date ind."

    Following the above paragraph is the this heading with which I also would like some translation help! "RA--ASF--PRD, asgmt to PAC, Cp. Beal, Calif." Below the above heading it states: "(EM are RA enl TC--PAC--Hawaii)". Finally, following below that is: NAME Myers, William; GR Sgt; ASN RA (followed by his number); CO B; BRKS 733; ROS 1203; DUE TO REPORT 10 APR 46

    My sincere thanks for any help!!!

    My best guess . . .

    After my father returned to the USA he was given a 90 day furlough and ordered (Special Order 324) to report back. The Order listed him under Hawaii and noted ARM was TC. Following this order, Special Order 83 was issued directing him to report 10 APR 46. The following wording is what I need help with: "TFN EM, Atchd unasgd RA 5th BN (RC) 1322d SCU, WP organs named below o/a 26 MAR 46, reptg to the CO thereat for asgmt before midnight on date ind."

    Transferred Enlisted man (men?) attached unassigned Regular Army, 5th Battalion (Reception Center) 1322 Soldier Control Unit, will proceed to organizations named below on or about 26 March 1946, reporting to the commanding officer thereat for assignment before midnight on date indicated.

    Following the above paragraph is the this heading with which I also would like some translation help! "RA--ASF--PRD, asgmt to PAC, Cp. Beal, Calif." Below the above heading it states: "(EM are RA enl TC--PAC--Hawaii)". Finally, following below that is: NAME Myers, William; GR Sgt; ASN RA (followed by his number); CO B; BRKS 733; ROS 1203; DUE TO REPORT 10 APR 46

    Regular Army - - Army Service Force - - Proceed to assignment Personnel Administration Center, Camp Beal, California
    Enlisted men are Regular Army enlisted Transportation Corps - - Personnel Administration Center - - Hawaii
    NAME: Myers, William
    GRADE: Sergeant
    Army Service Number: RA------- (
    you could have left it in, they don’t use these numbers anymore and some of the more nimbler around here can sniff out more information if the number is available.)
    Company B
    Barracks 733

    (the above two are his current assigned billet up to his 26 March departure date)
    Return from Overseas: 1203
    DUE TO REPORT 10 APR 1946
    (This is his report date at Camp Beal, as opposed to his departure date, 26 March 1946)
