WWII KIA Grouping - 116th Inf Reg. - 29th Division - Aachen 1944

Recommended Posts

Recent eBay Find!


Seller was the Niece of the KIA Soldier. She had no family to pass the medal on to… Her biggest concern was that he was going to be forgotten...


Only 19 years old and in the Army for less than 8 months, he was Killed in Action near Aachen Germany.


Grouping includes KIA Telegram, KIA Follow-up Letter, and a Letter from 116th Infantry’s Chaplin.


Pocket Bible & Gold Star Flag…


Medal is hand engraved and numbered.


Amazing Grouping! Glad it stood the test of time and remained together!


I’ve blocked out the name for now, would like to research it out more before posting…
