This record is a "Cenotaph" in his honor

Clyde is interred in the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, Lemay, Missouri.
( see below family links )

Clyde served as a Sergeant & Engineer, B-24J #44-40916, 33rd Bomber Squadron, 22nd Bomber Group, U.S. Army Air Force during World War II.

He resided in Putnam County, Indiana prior to the war.

He enlisted in the Army on October 19, 1942 in Indianapolis, Indiana. He was noted, at the time of his enlistment, as being employed as a Driver and also as Single, without dependents.

Clyde died in the "Line Of Duty" when the B-24J he was on crashed in the Samar Islands, Philippines for unknown reasons during the war.

He was originally interred overseas and was later repatriated here on March 16, 1950.

Clyde also has a "Cenotaph" in the Cloverdale Cemetery, Cloverdale, Indiana.
( see below family links )

Service # 35563636

The reason he is named on a group headstone is because when soldier's were killed in close proximity to each other they were unable, at that time, to identify them separately and interred their remains together in one grave.

His brother, SGT James H Hurst , was also "Killed In Action" during the war.
