I am looking for more information on two items; The train ride from Camp Barkley to Camp Shanks and any information on the 11-day sail aboard the U.S.S. Bliss in 1944.

I have a few books on the 12th and the 493rd but there aren't many recollections on those two events save for a few paragraphs here & there.

I am writing some notes for the family on my Grandfathers journey 70 years ago.

Thank you for any resources.

Mike
