I boarded the SHAWNEE at San Francisco May of 1944. we took army troops to the south pacific via Hawaii. Some ports were Port Moresby New Gunea, Milne Bay, Oro Bay, Finchhaven, Lae, Biak. The Solomon Islands, New Hebrides, New Caldonia, and Guadicanal that I can remeber. Took Australian troops Brisbane to Bouganville and Americal Divison Bouganville to Hollandia, New Guneia where we made convoy and landed at Tacloban, Leyte late December 1944 or early January 1945. Names of crew can be found at National Archives, San Bruno, California.
