My Dad was a Navy Seabee and participated in operation Oboe 2. He was with the 5th Division-1st Platoon-Company D. He is 91 years old and I am trying compile a history of his service for his great grandson. I am drawing a blank on his time on Borneo. He also served in the Peleliu action. Can you suggest any resources that I might use?
Thanks In advance
