The 671st Tank Destroyer Battalion served in the Pacific Theatre during World War II and was equipped with M18 tank destroyers. It landed in the Philippines in July 1945 but saw little combat during the final weeks of the war. You can find more information about this unit and others by visiting Google and typing in Tank Destroyer Society, a website that has much information about the Tank Destroyer Force in general and links to other websites that have information about the various tank destroyer battalions.
The 652nd Tank Destroyer Batallion was not assigned to a particular division as it remained stateside during World War II.

The Pacific was divided into two theaters, largely because after MacArthur escaped from the Philippines something had to be done to give him a command appropriate to his prestige. So the Southwest Pacific Theater was carved out for this purpose. Admiral Chester Nimitz commanded the Central Pacific Theater.
He commanded the U.S.S. Caine which was a destroyer / minesweeper in the Pacific during World War II.
Major H.F. Martin commanded the 1277th Engineer Combat Battalion in the European Theater of Operations during WW 2. Richard V. Horrell WW 2 Connections.com

632 Tank Destroyer Battalion I would think: Probably using the A10 tank destroyer, a self propelled gun which the British called Achilles. 632 t/d was attached to the 24th infantry division during ww2, did a lot of fighting on Leyte island. would have been equipped with m10 or m37 s/p guns
