I'm trying to find information on my father, Elwayne Peters' time in the Pacific. I do not remember the exact name of my father's unit, but from my recollection of his stories, I believe he may have been part of the 22nd. BG. Dad arrived in the Pacific Theater in late 1942. He started in Australia but quickly moved to New Guinea, where he spent several months. His unit moved to the Phillipines where he spent most of the war. He did go into Japan for a few months before returning to the States.|
Dad was from east Tennessee and was a ground crew chief. He worked almost exclusively with B-24's.
If any of you know from this brief, sketchy history if another unit would be more likely, please let me know.
Many thanks to all of you who served in the Red Raiders for your time and sacrifice in the service of our country!!
