Albert Breshears, Jr
Birth: Aug. 2, 1919
Boise
Ada County
Idaho, USA
Death: Jun. 1, 2000
California, USA

Albert is the youngest child of Albert Winfield & Anna Ferrell Breshears

Albert had the following children:
Lawrence Joseph "Joe" Daniels
Anna Marie Daniels
Jeanne Carol Brown Breshears (1945-1964)
Kevin Albert Breshears (1950-1997)
Leta Ann Breshears

Albert is one of the soldiers that General Eisenhower sent to clean up Buchenwald Concentration Camp. He was helping clean out the surrounding area during their night maneuvers and the Germans threw a grenade at his Unit.... He covered the grenade with his helmut, and was blown into the air. Our command lost him and he was Missing In Action for 3 months after the War was over. He lived to be 80 years old, but he suffered from the shrapnel that was left in his chest all of his life and finally succumbed to it....

Rest in Peace Beloved Patriot.
