Albert Sykes joined Company G on Cebu as a replacement on 3 April 1945. Like most of the replacements at this stage of the war, he had little time to get acclimated before he was on the front lines in combat. He was wounded on 10 April during the heavily contested assault up Babag Ridge. He spent the next month and a half hospitalized, and rejoined Company G on 31 May. He remained with the company through the occupation of Japan and returned home with the unit to Washington state, where it was inactivated.
