Response to quotations from the Joint Committee on the PH attack
Thanks for the confirmation in this post. I knew that my father, Edward Bulian, was in the Pensacola convoy, but I wasn't sure on which ship. He was a member of the 147th Field Artillery Regiment, South Dakota National Guard, that had been mobilized in 1940 and garrisoned at Fort Ord, CA, for about a year. In November 1941 they gathered up all their gear and went to the Presidio of San Francisco to await passage to Pear Harbor. As noted in many of these threads, they were intended to go to Manila. One thing in particular my dad said was they spent two days at Pearl while their rudder was repaired. That lined up perfectly with your last statement about the USAT Willard A. Holbrook. I appreciate the information.
