USMCR1942 Posted August 7, 2021 Share #1 Posted August 7, 2021 Hi, Here is a small grouping named to PFC Clyde A LaPlante who served with B/551st PIR. I believe that he was WIA shortly after landing in the south of France for Operation Dragoon and was even involved in the final battle of the battalion at Rochelinval in January 1945. I believe that the Purple heart was engraved after the war, mainly due to the fact that he was WIA not KIA and that the bronze star is the upgrade for earning a combat infantry badge, as i cant find any records of the bronze star award.
