F Company, 442nd RCT
From Camp Shelby, the 442nd is sent to Norfolk, Virginia where they board Liberty Ships at Newport News Harbor.
As they near Europe, they encounter a hurricane. Most everyone except Ronald is seasick. He fries two hundred pork chops but only three or four men show up to eat.
The 2nd Battalion, including F Company, is sent to Oran, Africa for two weeks. They are transported to Naples, Italy on a British ship, HMS Samaria, and assemble in Bagnoli, Italy.
