Best Answer

My fathe was in the first US Army division 16th infantry. He enlisted in 1940 & was honorably discharge May 14th 1945. My father was sent home on furlough in 1945 as he had accumulated enough points.He sailed from La Havre, France in February 1945.

I believe the army points system was as follows: 1 point for each month in the service.

1 point for each month overseas.

5 points if you received the bronze.

5 points for any additional medal

5 points for the purple heart.

12 points for each child under 18.

Once you had 85 points yoou were entitled for furlough stateside.
