804th Aviation Engineers
#1

My grandfather served with the 804th Aviation Engineers on Saipan in 1944-45. I have some photos that he took while on the island. I haven't been able to locate info on other members of his unit. I would love to find out more about his experience there. He passed in 1996 and didn't share much about it. Any info would be appreciated. His name is Elliott Robbins from Providence Rhode Island.

How did I not see this until now. My apologies. Great photos. We don't often see much about aviation engineers in the Pacific, so it's always a treat. Let me see if I have anything on the unit.
