10. Or battle fatigue

After my mom died last spring I found some of my dad's Army papers and there was one from his commanding officer recommending he (Pop) be grounded and sent stateside for R&R as he was showing signs of battle fatigue (after over a year in the Pacific). The commander thought it was early enough that after some rest Dad would be ready to return to theater. I couldn't find anything that told me what happened, but I think he may have been sent to Louisana as he was seemed to have been there when he was discharged in September 1945.

I'm going to write for his records but there's a good chance they were among those destroyed at the fire at the St. Louis center in the 70s.
