Eugene was a 2nd Lt. in the 350th infantry, 88th Division. He died July 19, 1944 and is buried in Florence, Italy. He was awarded a purple heart.

The following information appears in an article of the Lyons Daily News dated Monday, August 2, 1944:
"Attached to an infantry unit Lieutenant Kimple shipped overseas last April, going directly to Italy where his outfit is participating in the victorious Allied drive up the Italian boot. With only one semester to go to receive his degree in vocational agriculture from Kansas State college at Manhattan, Lieutenant Kimple entered the service July 2, 1943, and was assigned directly to officers candidate school at Fort Benning, Georgia, his ROTC training at KSC preparing him for this step to an army commission."
