digi-shots Posted April 14, 2019 Share #1 Posted April 14, 2019 Still doing research on this new grouping, but here is what I have so far.The veteran enlisted on December 19, 1942 and was captured exactly 2 years from this date during the Battle of The Bulge - Bastogne. The 326th Airborne Medical Company was captured by the Germans and approx. 130 members of the Medical Company were taken prisoner.His name shows up on the After Action Report as MIA and later listed as a POW at Stalag 4B Muhlberg Sachsen 51-13. The camp was liberated by the Russians in April 1945. Stalag IVB was one of the largest prisoner of war camps during WWII.The ring in the photo is made of bakelite and has his photo embedded in the top. These rings are sometimes known as mourning rings. He was married at the time and my guess is that his wife had it made as a remembrance of him.... perhaps after learning he was missing in action.Thanks for looking!
