Birth: Dec. 5, 1922
Death: Dec. 14, 1944

PFC William Thieman (DOW)

William Thieman, 22, was wounded in Germany and died later in Belgium on December 14, 1944. He was buried there in Henri Chappel Cemetery. His remains were returned to New Bremen and re-interred in German Protestant Cemetery on December 14, 1947 with a graveside military funeral. American Legion members from New Bremen and Minster and the Minster school band accompanied the cortege to the cemetery. Also, a three formation cortege of army planes criss-crossed over the town and the cemetery while the services were in progress. At the proper time, flowers were dropped from a low altitude upon his casket. The fliers were Tom Kuenning of New Bremen, John Smith of Minster and Jim Vogelsang of Fort Loramie, all servicemen and friends of Mr. Thieman.
