There is a William J Muller, PFC that came from the replacement Depot on July 4, 1944 to I company, 116th Regiment, 29th Division. Was sent to the hospital (wounded) on July 15, 1944. Was dropped from the muster rolls on July 19, 1944. Doesn't look like he came back. This from the daily report files.

Says he was a Mortarman, so we gather he was part of a 60mm mortar team in the Weapons Platoon of Item Company.
