Cpl Edward E. Hildebrand was a soldier in Company K of the 39th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division. He was killed in action on 6 August 1943 in Sicily. He was buried in the temporary American GELA Cemetery in grave D-47-561, date of burial was 7 August 1943. After the war his remains were repatriated and buried in the Delhi Cemetery in Sayre, Oklahoma.
Over 1,200 men and women were buried in the GELA Cemetery, I am writing a book about this cemetery and hope to finish it next year, 2013.
You took a picture of his grave, can I have your permission to use the picture for my book project, of course you will be credited and notified whent the book is finished
