Originally from Huntsville, Texas, Private First Class James Hoke was sent to fight in WWII as part of the 90th Infantry Division. On June 6, 1944, Hoke was one of many Americans to storm the beaches of Normandy, France in what would become the largest seaborne invasion in history (also known as D-Day). On that day, he was attached to the 4th Infantry Division which landed on Utah Beach. After being slightly wounded, he was told to remain on the beach for treatment by advancing medics. It is assumed that Hoke was later hit by artillery or mortar fire.
