Birth: Nov. 26, 1922
Olean
Cattaraugus County
New York, USA
Death: Aug. 27, 1982, USA

Although John's original military enlistment card dated Dec 7th, 1938, shows his date of birth as Nov 26, 1920, so he would be accepted as being of the legal age of 18, his actual date of birth was really November 26, 1922, which is shown in later life records.

>From the New York Enlisted Men's Cards:

Name: John B Sopko Jr
Birth: 26 Nov 1920 - Olean, New York
Military: 7 Dec 1938 - Company F, 174th Infantry
Residence: 152 Elk St, Buffalo, New York

He later would transfer to 11th Airborne Division, and go to Parachute School, and Jump School, joining Company A of the
511th Parachute Infantry Regiment.
