Happy Birthday PFC REGIS GALLAGHER; 672nd Amphibian Tractor Battalion- October 6, 1923- June 21, 2008

I am happy to have happened upon an extensive photo album and WWII diary of PFC Regis Gallagher. I am proud to have a photo record of a little known unit, the 672nd Amphibian Tractor Battalion. He spent time on Bougainville attached to the 37th Infantry Division, preparing for the invasion of Luzon, Philippines.  He hit the beach January 9, 1945 with the 37th Infantry Division and fought all the way to Manila.  On February 23, 1945 his unit made the amphibious attack on the Los Banos internment camp.  Afterwards, his unit was shipped to Morati where they trained with the Australian 7th Army.  They sailed to Borneo and hit the beach July 1, 1945, where they fought for two weeks with the Australians in the last major Allied campaign in the Pacific. 
More of his diary will be published and more men in his unit shared, but until then; here are a couple photos of PFC Gallagher, remembering him 93 years after his birth.

  1. My Dad was part of the 672nd, Company B (?). I'm trying to do research to determine the exact routes they traveled, and do know that one of the biggest projects Dad was in on with his water/land vehicle was the liberation of Los Banos; is there any way to find out specifics on his company & what they experienced? He didn't talk much about it for understandable reasons, and undoubtedly witnessed unspeakable and unthinkable atrocities. His name was Harry E. Bukowski, and his rank was corporal, though most of the time he did the work of a sergeant, as one of their unit's sergeants got blown to pieces by Japanese gunfire upon one of their landings...any guidance anyone can help me with would be dearly appreciated. Thanks.
