Here is his ww2 draft registration and also where he is buried. Also found a write up in the Catholic News Weekly dated 1944 showing his actions that awarded him his Silver Star.
Items about the 175th INF:
Thank you so kindly! I am currently looking through all of my uncles writings and am putting together a small documentary on what he jotted down. I showed the registration and commendation to his sister (my mother) and she was so pleased. I do have his silver star but did not have his commendation.
Thank you Thank you
