I have a WD AGO 53-98 (Military Record and Report of Separation Certificate of Service) for Amelia I Waara N 771 740 1st Lt. Can someone please help me decipher the codes in Box 33 (Reason and Authority for Separation)? They read as follows: Reld AD WD Cir 290 Sec II 22 Sep 45 P 22 S0 251 Gardner General Hospital 27 Nov 45. I am told there may be a difference in codes for officers and enlisted...? I understand that 22 Sep 45 and 27 Nov 45 are dates, but not sure what they signify. (Her dates of service were 23 March 1943 to 3 March 46.) I presume that Gardner General Hospital is where she worked. Thank you!
For the most part its says that she was Reld (Released) from Active Duty (AD) per War Department (WD) Cir (Circular) 290 Section II on Sep 22 1945 Not sure what P 22 is but (SO) means Special Order #251 from Gardner General Hospital.
Here is some additional information.
Hope this helps,
