The 75th Composite Training Infantry Battalion was one of the first units to arrive at Camp Gordon Johnston. We have some record that they were at the camp as early as October 1942, when the camp was called Camp Carrabelle. (it was named Camp Gordon Johnson in Jan 1943). We can find little of the history of this Composite Training Infantry, and it appears that the men were assigned to other infantry regiments before being deployed. One such soldier was James B. Chitty of Missouri, who fought with company A of the 109th Infantry Regiment, 28th Infantry Division.
