Hey I sure hope there is someone out there who can help me. I take care of a 93 year old WWII Marine veteran of the Peleliu battle in the pacific theatre. He remembers getting loaded up onto a transport ship leaving Peleliu and going to Pavuvu, the MS Sloterdyke, on 30 Oct 1944. He was the last of the F/2/7 marines leaving the island. He remembers fondly the apologetic captain explaining to the troops that the only thing on board to eat was steak, and for that he apologized. These guys hadn't eaten a real meal or had a peaceful night's rest in 45 days. So anyway if I could find any information to take to him I would be most appreciative.
