He participated in the raid on Dieppe in Aug of ’42, and also served in North Africa, Sicily and Italy. On November 13, 1943 he sustained abdominal wounds while on patrol in Venafro, Italy and died 6 days later on November 19, 1943 … less than one month before his brother, Wes, was to be shot down over Germany.

In Memoriam
by Jillian Brinkley

Uncle Wes enlisted in the Army on January 17, 1941, almost a year before the attack on Pearl Harbor. He served in the artillery for 7 months before joining the Army Air Corps. When he was commissioned as a 2nd Lt., he wrote home saying, “Am I happy!” He was waiting on his 1st Lt. Commission when he was killed in action. His last letter to his parents on Dec. 8th said how excited he was going to be to get that and it should be there any day now. He was shot down over Germany 5 days later on Dec. 13, 1943.
