Pfc Buster N. Johnson was a paratrooper in Headquarters & Headquarters Company of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division. He was killed in action on 12 July 1943 in southern Sicily. Private First Class Johnson was buried in the temporary American GELA Cemetery in grave E-50-600 on 5 August 1943. After the war - on request of the next of kin - he was buried in grave G-8-39 of the Sicily Rome Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy.
Over 1,200 men and women were buried in the GELA Cemetery between 1943-1947. I am writing a book about this temporary cemetery and hope to finish it next year (2013).
