    Seeking records of Seaman 1st Class Milo Nielsen

    Brianne Ellison Newbie

      I am a volunteer writer for "Stories Behind the Stars" and I am looking for details on what unit this sailor, Milo Wilson Nielsen, was with and locations if possible. I do know that he was killed in action while serving in New Guinea on April 22, 1944. When I researched this date I found the date and location matches the Battle of Hollandia. "Task Force 75 was made up of three U.S. cruisers, USS Phoenix, USS Nashville, and USS Boise under Rear Admiral Russell Berkey." I'm thinking he was serving with one of these cruisers. Any help would be appreciated! See https://www.storiesbehindthestars.org/
