My dad was in this division and was also part of Hellcats Holiday. He passed away and I'm looking for more info. He never spoke of his times in service.
Thanks

Hello, As an MP your Dad would have been
with Division HQ. Our roster says HQ Co.
(I am a bit confused by this).

Can you explain "Hellcat Holiday"? Was it a
show put on by the men overseas or in Europe after the war?

Mike

Hellcat Holiday was a production that was put on by members of the 12th while at camp Barkeley. I was highly successful and toured to other military camps in Texas. You can articles about the production in the Scrapbooks on the Portal to Texas site.

roster I have says that he was in DIV HQ as an MP.
fILE on "HELLCAT Holiday" has him listed as a Pvt. at time of his performance.
Have a file on the show - mainly from HCN.

Thank you for the responses and articles! I've been searching all over the Internet for info and photos of my dad but can only find those referring to the production and "HELLCOPS".
