Helen: Abbreviations used by the military can be puzzling. In this instance, I'd guess that "cra" might stand for completed refresher (course in something) or considered ready for assignment. It would help to know when he enlisted and what his rating was. Because of the dates, "tran" more than likely means transferred (from AGC Brooklyn) and "rdut" means reported for duty (at AGC New Orleans). I wouldn't bet on any of this, but it seems logical.
