PFC James C Konyud
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1920
Ohio, USA
Death: Jan. 1, 1945, Germany

James was the fifth of nine children. He was a graduate of John Hay High School. On February 3, 1942, he enlisted in the military at the age of 23. He landed at Normandy as part of the Allied invasion in June, 1944, and then fought with American troops near the Battle of the Bulge. James served with K Company, 121st Infantry Regiment. He was reported missing near the Germany-Belgium border on January 1, 1945. In 2007, a German Explosive Ordnance Disposal team working in an agricultural field between Vossenack and Hürtgen, found human remains and military-related equipment, including Konyud's military identification tag. The remains and items were turned over to U.S. Army Memorial Affairs Activity-Europe officials for further analysis. Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command teams traveled to excavate the crash site twice in 2007 and once in 2008, recovering additional remains and crew-related equipment—including a second identification tag for Konyud. Among other forensic identification tools and circumstantial evidence, scientists from JPAC and the Armed Forces DNA Identification Laboratory used mitochondrial DNA, which matched that of Konyud's brother and niece, in the identification of his remains. He was laid to rest in his hometown on September 25, 2010, in Calvary Cemetery.

James is also honored at Netherlands American Cemetery/Memorial and the date on that memorial is the date he was declared dead.
