Pvt. Warren K. Knipple (KIA)

Warren Knipple, 22, was Killed In Action at St. Jean de Baisants, France on July 27, 1944. He was in the Chemical Warfare Division and was in a forward observation party during an attack when telephone connections with the rear element of the unit were severed. He repeatedly tried to repair the lines, but repeatedly they were rendered useless by the enemy. Finally, radio communications were established and Pvt. Knipple assumed the job of radio operator. While he was performing this mission, he was killed by an enemy mortar shell. His remains were later returned to New Bremen and re-interred in German Protestant Cemetery on Sunday, February 8, 1948.
