I am so pleased to find this site. My Father was a Mess Sergeant in the Aleutian Campaign from 2 June, 42 to 1 Oct 43.
I have searched for over a year trying to find a site that lists the varying units that were engaged in this campaign. I know they had the 7th, but they didn't arrive until the spring of 43.
If anyone has this information I would be so grateful if you could share it with me.
His favorite way of introducing anything about the Aleutians was, "I got there in the night of June 2,1942 and I slept until 2am. I got my men up to start preparing breakfast, but we got bombs for breakfast.
Thank you all again
