We hops this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Do you have any more information about the name of the unit he served in--a division or regiment name, perhaps?
I saw an article on Newspapers.com that has some details about him. One of the things it said was he "went into action in the invasion of Southern France" and that he received a Purple Heart (the newspaper was The Record, Hackensack, NJ, Feb. 5, 1945).
