    I think you meant 27th Infantry Regiment vice the 27th Infantry Division. The 27th Infantry Regiment was part of the 25th Infantry Division which served in the Northern Solomons. The 27th Infantry Division served in the Central Pacific.

    ,,, many parts of the 27th NY inf. div. were involved in this fight, as my father and his gun crews played duel roles as artillery and regular inf. in almost every major battle in the south pacific..
