ETO-PAC REDEPLOYMENT, 1945

It should be noted that combat ended in the ETO in May 1945, while the war against Japan continued in the Pacific Theater for over three more months. During this interval, redeployment entailed transferring units from Europe to East Asia via the U. S., where rest and retraining would occur before final redeployment into the Pacific Theater.
