    Seeking information on 60th Infantry Regiment, 9th Division

    Patricia Francoeur Newbie

      I am looking for information or other personnel that may have served with my Uncle, Leonard Charles Francoeur, from February - March 1945. He served in the 60th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division. He was from Genoa City, Wisconsin. I have some information stating he was with antiaircraft artillery. He is buried in Henri Chapelle Cemetery, Belgium. He entered the service 2/17/1943, trained at Fort Bliss, Texas; Camp Davis, North Carolina; Camp Haan, California; Camp Livingston, Louisiana; and Fort Meade, Maryland. He went overseas on 2/10/1945. His last letter home was dated 3/11/1945 somewhere in Germany. He died of his wounds on March 18, 1945.  Thank You
