Joseph B. Skrinak

WWII Veteran:  U.S. Army, Company D, 727th Military Police Battalion, Army Post Office (APO) 1295 New York, NY.

Joe enlisted in the U.S. Army on 16 April 1942 at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland.

727th MP Bn was constituted 10 January 1942 in the Army of the United States as the 727th Military Police Battalion (Zone of the Interior).

727th MP Bn was activated 25 March 1942 at Camp Forrest, Tennessee.

Staged for deployment to the ETO at Camp Kilmer, NJ during September 1942.

Inactivated 8 November 1945 at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.

Camp Kilmer was activated in June 1942 — the first staging area to be built solely for that purpose in the United States. It is also the largest staging area in the United States and has handled more than two and a half million troops during WWII. Named for Sgt. Alfred Joyce Kilmer, the soldier-poet of World War I whose home was in nearby New Brunswick, Camp Kilmer is an installation of the New York Port of Embarkation, part of the Army Service Forces' gigantic Transportation Corps.
