This group, or Ron Carlson was very helpful in finding information about the John Lykes which was the ship my family was on when we came back to the US from the Philippines. I have just returned from a reunion of fellow POW's who are also looking to find out about the ships on which thsy were transported. Two families arrived in SanFrancisco around April 9-12, possibly the Japara,the other family left Manila on April 9, on a hospital ship, possibly John D. Meares, or Cape Meares, a Seebee converted to hospital ship. Any help you can offer is very much appreciated!! Thanks so much! Heather Holter Ellis
