My father, Wesley Tobin is still living and of sound mind (92 years old). He's in a Veteran's parade tomorrow. He served in the 895th Medical Clearing Company. He tells me it was one of the pre-MASH units. I was trying to find information on the unit and names he served with but can't locate anything. Do you have any of your father's paperwork? My father has nothing left service related. Just so long ago now.

Along with his service in Company I of the 135th Medical Regiment, my father served with the 895th Medical Clearing Company. I believe Lee is right that there must be some connection between the two units.

My father was in Company I of the 135th medical regiment as well. I think it later became known as the 895th Medical Clearing Company. They eventually left New Guinea for the Phillippines.

My father was assigned to Company I of the 135th Medical Regiment in July 1944 when he mailed some film back to the United States. His name was James Foster and he was a Private First Class. He survived the war but died of a heart attack in 1975.

In researching my own fathers military past, I came accross information which shows that Edward S. Newsome died on August 17, 1944 in Finschhafen Dutch New Guinea. It appears that his nickname was " Tex ". He was with Company I of the 135th medical regiment.I would suggest that you contact the Wisconsin Veterans Museum to try and get more info. It is in Madison.

I am looking for anyone that might have been part of this unit or know anyone that was.
I know very little at this point of my Fathers time serving our Country so would be very grateful for the smallest of information.
