I would like get as much information as I can on my father tour. He past away 3/23/07.
His Records show that he was awarded Asiatic Pacific Sevice Medal and Two Bronze Stars.

Hello again. Wilford D. Hoff was in the
56th HQ. The 56th did not go to Asia.
The first possibility is that your father
was transferred. Please check to see whether he has any record of being in the
European theater, in France and Germany.
Possibly he was transferred out of the 56th
before they went to Europe, or in the
midst of their campaign in Europe. Also,
there are identical names including middle
names. Possibly someone else with the
same name was in the 56th.

In the meantime, please follow up on the message I sent in answer to your previous
posting.

If another person with the same name was in
the 56th, he and your father would have to have come from the same small town.
I doubt that you would have missed that,
so my next hypothesis is that he was transferred somehow.
