On the UN PAC the main trains used cabooses for the train crew. The
military had their people in the cars.

I don't know about WWII, but by the early 1950's (Korean War era)
this was no longer true. There are many MAIN trains shown (in their
entirety!) on the UP outside of Fort Riley, KS in the DVD "Union Pacific
Steam Classics Volume 1" from Greg Scholl Video Productions. None of them
had cabooses.
