Thanks for sharing, my father in law in in the graduation picture in Robert Raysback posting and your father is standing behind him to the right. My father in law also did ETO and the Philippines

they obviously knew each other. Any information that you have about the 1053rd would be appreciated.

Just had a chance to go through it. Loved being able to see the photos and read the accompanying documentation.

For JerryLH who posted 31 May 2016. Pittsburg probably refers to Pittsburg, California, which  is N.E. of Oakland near the mouth of the Sacamento R.. This was the point of embarkation for the equipment. I know this from Dad's letters home during WW-2. He made 3 trips to Pittsburg CA in '43, ferrying 1054th equipment from Georgia. When the equipment was packed, the men went on to another port for overseas processing and shipment. That was Presidio Monterey for the 1054th, but that became the Army Language School near the end of the war. Hope this helps.
