Thank you for the information.

 

He was in the same unit (53rd AIB) as Staff Sergeant Homan K Jackson whose grave I adopted.

Staff Sergeant Jackson died on December 30, 1944 and rests at the Henri Chapelle American Military Cemetery.

I believe he was killed when the remnants of the infamous Leibstandarte (1st SS Panzer Division) hit the 4th AD around that time.

 

Erwin

 

PS: Just saw that Staff Sergeant Jackson was also from Michigan.
