149th Infantry, Glencoe, Cecil Black

My father was a member of the 149th Infantry which joined the 38th Cyclone Division in the liberation of the Phillippines. I am attempting to locate any information regarding the 149th and anyone from Gallatin County who may have known my father, Charles "Cecil" Black or his family (his parents owned a general store in Glencoe by the railroad tracks). My father passed away in 1966 when I was a very young child, and I am trying to get to know him better. What I do know as fact is that he entered the service from his hometown of Glencoe, Kentucky (Gallatin County), that he was on a troop transport ship that was attacked by Japanese Kamakazies, that the ship was severely damaged, and that a boy from Napoleon, Kentucky, Billy Joe Peace, was killed in the attack. I'd appreciate any information that anyone would have to share with me.
