☆~♰ World War II - Killed in Action ♰~☆

Served in the U.S. Marine Corps - Killed in action during the Battle of Iwo Jima - Awarded the Purple Heart

George was the oldest of ten children born to George and Anna Eckrote Rumpilla. He entered the service from Pennsylvania, and served as a Corporal on the USS Wichita (CA-45). He was wounded while fighting at Saipan. He was killed in action during the Battle of Iwo Jima and was awarded the Purple Heart for paying the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Because he was buried at sea, George also has a memorial at the Honolulu ABMC Memorial, where his name is listed on the Tablets of the Missing.
