    Searching information about S/SGT Fay E Jansen


      Hello, my name is Roy and I live in Maastricht in the southern part of the Netherlands. in the Netherlands, it is common to adopt a grave of a WWII soldier to honor their sacrifice and keep their memory alive.


      I am searching for more information on the grave I've adopted for Fay E. (Emmert) Jansen, Staff Sergeant of the 4th Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron. His date of birth was September 27, 1917 and was born in Melfort, Saskatchewan, Canada. He was killed in action on October 5, 1944  in the vicinity of Monschau, Germany and his ASN 37024187. He entered service from Park Rapids, Hubbard/ Glenwood, Minnesota. He was buried at first during war in Schmidt, Germany and reburied after the war in Ardennes American Cemetery (Plot c, Row 01, Grave 22).


      So far I found a DSS form, family tree, and newspaper clipping of a Boy Scout jamboree. I am searching for photographs, his relatives, unit information, his IDPF and his OMPF. All information can help! Thanks in advance.
