I did check out the various sites, and learned much. Was intrigued to learn there are 11 other ships with the name "Lykes", only to also learn that the "Lykes Bros." were steamship company. I found the routes of John Lykes which left Leyte for Manila, but no mention of Manila to Pearl Harbor, but then again Pearl Harbor to San Pedro, CA on the dates that would correspond with our trip. They mentioned Hollandia, but don't know where or what that is.
Again, thank you for all your help!
