I found this today and thought you might enjoy reading it. Dad was also with The Chinese Combat Command. http://www.chron.com...WII-2217926.php

It was a great read, thanks for sharing it with us.

If anyone has information on The Chinese Combat Command, I would greatly appreciate it. I found this article googling for info. There isn't much out there about it that I can find online. There are references to it, but not much detail.,.maybe a sentence or two.The CBI website is a gem with info on Ramgarh, where they trained the Chinese. I don't really understand what the Chinese Combat Command was, especially prior to the changes made in 1945. I really enjoyed the article. Had to share it.

I didn't find a specific reference in the following document but it sure looks like it should be related:

Here are a couple of more links. They may or may not be helpful, but they're worth  a look.
