George served as a First Lieutenant & Bombardier on B-25J #43-27807, 11th Bomber Squadron, 341st Bomber Group, U.S. Army Air Force during World War II.

He resided in Grafton County, New Hampshire prior to the war.

George was "Killed In Action" when his B-25 crashed during a bombing run in IndoChina (Vietnam) during the war. He was awarded the Air Medal and the Purple Heart.

He was originally interred in the Schofield Mausoleum #2, Honolulu, Hawaii and was later repatriated here on July 12. 1949.

Service # O-766226

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.
