Response to relevant answers in the Fowler article

 

Thank you for sharing the letter about the 244th. My father, Staff Sergeant George A Lowry, from the Bronx had been drafted in 1940 into the NY guard and became part of the 244th at Camp Pendleton. I have a photograph of the unit taken in July 1941 at Camp Pendleton.
He had told me about his part in the Pacific as a child but we never documented it as I was older. He passed away in 1996 and until I found the letter of the "The Old Ninth" I had no way of knowing what he had done during his service overseas.
Thank You
