Charles Jodrey, Jr. 1944
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Jodrey received the sad information that their son, Charles, Jr., was killed in action in Italy on May 25th, 1944. Charles enlisted April 19, 1943, and went overseas in December of the same year. He was 21 years of age.
Besides his parents, he is survived by three brothers and two sisters, Roy and Oran, of Newburne; and Robert, at home; Mrs.Clarence Dexter, of Liverpool; and Mrs. James Carver, of Maplewood, besides many other relatives.
Another one has given his life for our sakes. "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
NOTE: "On May 23rd, the WNSR attack the Adolf Hitler Line at 4:30 pm. The Germans were well prepared, and from the West Novies, 50 were killed, 150 were wounded and 12 were taken prisoner.
After this battle was won, the WNSR went into a rebuilding stage. Near the end of July, they were secretly moved across Italy in preparation for the attack on the Gothic Line at the end of August."- Diana Lynn Tibert
