Madison William Davini Rochambeau AP-63 12 Aug 1943

Reported as COX in USS Rochambeau (AP-63),
a transport ship that saw service in the United States Navy during World War II

COX is the abbreviation for Coxswain. The individual would be an E-4 Boatswain's Mate. Today we would call that a Boatswain's Mate Third Class (BM3). In today's Navy the term is used to refer to any individual running a small boat or landing craft and doesn't refer to a rank or a rating.

Rochambeau on 5 June 1943 resumed her passenger/casualty runs to the south and southwest Pacific. Continuing those runs well into 1944, she added ports in New Guinea to her stops in September 1943
