Killed in Action
ANTHONY J. MANCUSO
Mancuso, private first class, was killed April 15, 1945, in the battle of Mont Della-Spe near Castellano, Italy, while serving with the Eighty-fifth Infantry in the Tenth Mountain Division of the U.S. Army. He was 23.
For scouting and warning his company of the enemy's approach in that battle, Mancuso was awarded the Silver Star. Six members of that company had entered the service with Mancuso on June 2, 1943. They had played football at Creighton Prep, where Mancuso was team captain and an All-State player in 1939. The six — Frank Pane, Joe Furst, Al Roth, Robert Gehringer, Al Schrader and Fox Carroll — were to serve as pallbearers at Mancuso's funeral at St. Ann's Catholic Church in Omaha.
