I think I saved the document and will post it when I find it.

*My dad was not a LRRP, I just came across the document while doing the research.

Edit: I found the document. I think I was mistaken about the Alamo Scouts. General Peers referenced his time in Burma. I don't know if the Alamo Scouts operated in that theater.
Thank you!
