Re: Where are Iwo Jima hospital ship records?

Not that familiar with Marine Corps protocols for handling wounded and unit records. In the Army there is a Morning Report which lists any change of personnel status in a company size unit each day. So if someone is wounded and removed from the unit for treatment it would be recorded the next day. I...

Okay I am seeing 3 hospital ships at Iwo Jima USS Solace (AH-5), USS Bountiful (AH-9), and the USS Samaritan (AH-10) plus 2 evacuation ships USS Pickney (APH-2) and USS Bland (APA-134).

Re: Where are Iwo Jima hospital ship records?

Did you get something which was the summary of his injury and treatment? My Father was in the Army and wounded and here is the summary information that they passed along for statistical purposes. Just identifies the patient by service number. http://i1182.photobucket.com/albums/x446/sirjahn/ETO%20Ca...

Re: Where are Iwo Jima hospital ship records?

When you asked for his military records did you specify that you wanted the medical records too? The medical records were kept elsewhere and not affected by the fire in St. Louis.

Re: 3rd Armored

Well the US Medical system didn't assign hospital units to Divisions but to support geographical areas usually assigned to Corps for administration. 3AD had the 45th Armored Medical Battalion as an integral medical unit but the Hospital units that would support them came from VII Corps or 1st Army. ...

Re: Hospital ship code questions

Could you put some context into the numbers. 1-A could be a ward location or a condition or a treatment type or a wound category. 11-KPC I don't have a clue what it could mean. Maybe a treatment category or injury type.
