Subject: Company 203 - Unit D - April 5, 1944

I came across some old navy records of my grandfather, Stanley (Bob) Somershoe. One appears to be a partial roster provided by "Sampson WW-2 Navy Veterans, Inc" in 1997 of Company 203, Unit D, From March 19, 1944 - May 1, 1944 - I also have an accompanying photo of Company 203. I'm Willing to share these upon request.

The other record was a "Notice of Separation From U.S. Naval Service". His service was from 3/18/1944 - 2/3/1946. This form shows he was a Seaman 1st Class (SV-6 USNR) ; Remarks: AL NAV 6-46, American Theater Ribbon, Victory Medal ; Service: USNTS Sampson, NY , R/S NTD Washington, D.C.

I am pretty ignorant to a lot of the abbreviations so was looking for help in understanding the following:

1) AL NAV 6-46?
2) R/S NTD Washington D.C.?
3) Is it possible to tell what specific ship, if any, that he served on based on the company, unit, date, medals, etc.. provided?
4) If so - What was there primary tasks during the war

Any information or direction would be greatly appreciated.
