I found Dad's application for a DD-214 that he subitted to the USCG in the late 1980's. He listed that he had not received three medals; Atlantic Service, Pacific Service and Victory Medal.
All of the other paperwork I have is for Atlantic convoys and coastwise movements. It fits that he made it to the Pacific aboard the Redstone in the fall/winter of 1945.
Thanks again for info on Fort Worth.
