PFC Jerry R. Vaculik
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 21, 1922
Death: Jul. 23, 1944, France

Jerry was one of 11 children born to Joe Vaculik and Eva Fiedler of Engle. Prior to World War II he worked for the Highway Department in East Bernard. He entered the armed forces on March 4, 1943 and took his training at Camp Butner, N.C., as a member of the infantry. He was stationed in Virginia, Maryland and England. He was sent overseas the first part of May 1944, being there only 3 months before he was killed in action in France on July 23, 1944. He was buried in the St. Mere Eglise Cemetry in France, but his remains were later moved to the Praha Cemetery.

His death was a terrible shock to the entire family. He was the youngest of three brothers in service and was a devoted member of the Praha Catholic Church. Pfc. Vaculik was an honest and friendly boy, and made scores of friends wherever he went.

Surviving are his grief-stricken mother, Mrs Eva Vaculik, two brothers in service, Pfc. Willie Vaculik of New York, and Sgt. Adolph Vaculik of Wisconsin, four other brothers, Joe, Julius, Henry and Bennie Vaculik, and one sister Mary. His father died five years ago.
