      Looking for information on my father, Charles Dana Quimby - WWII Army,  This is what i know - served from 4/12/45 to 1/03/47.  Final grade was Technician fifth grade.  A member of the 1486th Engineer Maintenance Company, a component of the 11th Corps area (what is this?)  in Japan  Then he was sent (how?) to FT. Bragg (CA) hospital for 1 month then to Letterman General Hospital for 3 months were he received his honorable separation. 

       

      What i am looking for -  location of basic training.  Any other training?   When and how was he sent to Japan?  Why was he sent to Ft. Bragg and then transfer to Letterman General?  Between his arrival in Japan and his medical transfer - did he leave Japan for any other reasons?   Suggestions - help - tahnk you in advance.  His son, Grover
