|Death: ||Jul. 17, 1943|
T/4 Gene Powers Jr was a paratrooper in Service Company 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division. He was killed in action on 17 July 1943, some 3 miles south of Niscemi (Sicily). He was first buried in a fieldgrave nearby. On 27 July 1943 he was reburied in the temporary American GELA Cemetery in grave C-28-327. After the war T/4 Powers' remains were repatriated and buried in the Maple Park Cemetery in Aurora, Missouri.
Over 1,200 men and women were buried in the GELA Cemetery. I am writing a book about this cemetery and hope to have it finished next year (2013).
