I bought a 3rd Division WWI wound accolade over the weekend, but I can't figure out the name. What I can figure out is that he was a corporal in Co. D of the 8th MG Battalion, but I'm lost on that name. If anyone wants to give it a try, I would appreciate it. thanks!!

Taking a wild stab, but the last name looks like “MacGassick”.

Geo. Is an abbreviation for George
