In your posting you typed "how that unit could have been been [sic] in Leyte and Luzon at almost the same time". Quite simple, the 508th AAA Gun Battalion arrived at Leyte after October 20, 1944. Departing Leyte, the 508th AAA Gun Battalion arrived at Luzon sometime after January 9, 1945. Many units in the PTO participated in both the Leyte & Luzon Campaigns.
