George Strickle Baragona
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 24, 1919
Death: Jun. 6, 1944
Graignes-Mesnil-Angot
Departement de la Manche
Basse-Normandie, France

George was named after his grandmother's (Mary Purvis) second husband, George R. Strickle.

George met his future wife, Pauline Russ, when he was stationed at Dale Mabry Field, in Tallahassee, Florida. Pauline was a student at Florida State College for Women (Florida State University). They were married in December, 1942. After the birth of their son, he chose to be a paratrooper to earn additional money for his family.

While his "official" death date is June 6, 1944, his death most likely occurred on June 12, when the Germans stormed the village of Graignes. His name is on the plaque (shown, right) which is in the ruins of the Catholic Church in Graignes.
