My father, Lt. Colonel Jennis Roy Galloway, was commanding officer of the 441 CIC assuming command on 10 January 1945 and relinquishing it on 12 October, 1945. Since the 441 constituted the theater headquarters for the CIC, he was the theater commander of the CIC during that period and assigned to MacArthur's staff.

Roy (as he liked to be called), landed at Atsugi airbase, Tokyo, on 29 August, 1945, just days after the Japanese capitulation but three days before the surrender ceremony aboard the Missouri. The next morning he witnessed MacArthur's landing in his private DC-4 "Bataan".

My father's last official duty with the army was to escort the Nazi war criminal, Josef Meisinger, the infamous "Butcher of Warsaw" from Japan to Washington in handcuffs. Meisinger was eventually tried for his crimes and hanged.

My father passed away on 1 May, 2009. He was buried with full military honors

I would like to correct the record that his first name was Jennis, not Dennis as indicted on this web page.
