 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Bonley A. Cowan entered service on 29 August 1945, shortly after his high school graduation and only months after his brother, Aubrey B Cowan, USMC, was KIA on Iwo Jima.
Bonley was sent through Army Air Force basic training (MOS 521) at an unknown location.He then attended an AAF Technical School for clerk-administrative field (MOS 405) for a period of ten weeks at Lowrey Field, Colorado.
Bonley departed for the Asiatic Pacific Theater on 25 March 1946, arriving at his destination on 6 April 1946. He was assigned as a clerk to the 2115th Service Unit for the next seven months.
He embarked for the United States on 28 Oct 1946 and arrived on 2 November. He was honorably discharged from the Unied States Army for the convenience of the government due to demobilization at Fort Bragg, NC, on 26 November 1946, following one, year, two months, and 28 days of service.
Bonley was given 18 days terminal leave and a total mustering out pay of $300, $100 of which he received on his discharge date, along with $68.80 in travel pay, for a total disbursement of $112.24.
It does not add up, but those are the figures I copied from his WD AGO Form 53-55, precursor of the DD214.
I can locate no data on the 2115th Service Unit, USAAF. His separation qualification record, WD AGO Form 100, states only that they were located in the Asiatic Pacific Theater.
