Response to Re: Commendation for Btry F, 244th REGT, Coast Artillery
My grandfather fought in the costal artillery during WW2. He never talked about it and when he passed my grandmother sold his paperwork and medals. I am trying to piece together if this was his unit. He fought in the pacific and was involved in a lot of shelling. He was from Long Island New York and did not actually fight until late 43 onwards. I know a lot of the men that fought with him become sterile as a result of where they fought in one major battle. Does this sound like Guadalcanal ? and the 3rd Battalion 244th Troop F ?
