Dear Ms. Oldenkamp,
Thank you for posting your request to History Hub!
According to our records, 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. U.S. Army Transport Service passenger lists of military personnel from 1941-46 are still in the legal custody of the Army. For access to these records, please contact Anthony Crawley-Gibson, Army Records Officer, Army Records Management Division, 7701 Telegraph Road, Alexandria, VA 22315. The telephone number is 703-428-6464 and email is email@example.com. Please request the name of the facility, transfer numbers, and box numbers.
We suggest that you contact the National WWII Museum, 923 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA 70130. The telephone number is (504) 528-1944 and web site is https://www.nationalww2museum.org/.
