My father is celebrating his 89th birthday this year. He served proudly served in the 836th, but to this day, never talks much about action his unit saw while constructing airfields in the Pacific Theatre for our guys to land and operate from. I believe his memories are just to painful for him to discuss. Over the years, my Dad has shared only a few memories and shown me one photo he still has of himself in a Japanese machine gun emplacement his unit over-ran and captured. I would be interested in hearing from any and all who can provide information on the 836th role in WWII. Thanks in advance.
