I tend to doubt they went to Asia or the Pacific with troops, but at this late date it's unlikely anyone knows their purpose for sure. More likely they were used for base security or possibly arming some intelligence, CID, or logistics unit, etc. possibly based at Ft. Mason. The U. S. Army as a service arm used very few Victories of any barrel length, certainly not for arming combat troops, and the great majority of .38 Specials used by the U. S. Military went to the U. S. Navy.
