Wayne arrived safely in the United States. His voyage appears to have been uneventful, but it was not without peril. Japanese submarines still lurked in the Pacific.
His port of arrival is unknown. After processing, he is shipped by train to Fort Logan1 outside of Denver, Colorado.
Wayne is just one part of a mass of men and women being shipped to and from harm’s way.
