Birth: Jul. 5, 1924
New York, USA
Death: Aug. 6, 1944

Francis served as a Private First Class, 115th Infantry, U.S. Army during World War II.

He resided in Suffolk County, New York prior to the war.

He enlisted in the Army on May 10, 1943 in New York City, New York. He was noted as being Single, without dependents.

He was "Killed In Action" during the war and was awarded a Purple Heart.

Service # 32905254

For some reason he was listed as being from Anne Arundel County, Maryland on the NARA listings. He may have had family ties to that area.

His record is unusual ... Born in New York, enlisted in New York, marker shows Maryland ... and buried in Delaware.
