Dear Mr. Burnett,
Thank you for posting your question to the History Hub!
Unfortunately, in 1951 the Department of the Army destroyed all manifests, logs of vessels, and troop movement files of United States Army transports for World War II (including 1941) and most of the passenger lists. Some earlier lists and related records created by the Transportation Division of the Office of the Quartermaster General (Record Group 92) can be found here in the National Archives Catalog, and several of those series are also available through Ancestry.com, which can be accessed free of charge from any National Archives Research Facility. Please contact the Textual Reference Branch at the National Archives in College Park, MD (Archives II) with questions about these or related records. Their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, you can find a history of the U.S. Army Transportation Corps here on the Army’s website, and their historian and/or museum staff may be able to offer further assistance.
Finally, for information concerning U.S. Army transport ships, we also recommend that you consult David H. Grover, U.S. Army Ships and Watercraft of World War II (Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 1987).
Thanks, again, for sharing your question with the History Hub, and best of luck with your search.
