John served as a Private Fifth Class, 351st Infantry, 88th Infantry Division, U.S. Army during World War II.

He resided in Union County, New Jersey prior to the war.

He enlisted in the Army on April 30, 1943 in Newark, New Jersey. He was noted, at the time of his enlistment, as being employed in the production of industrial chemicals and also as Single, without dependents.

John was "Killed In Action" in Italy during the war. Due to the list on names on this headstone it would appear they were all killed in some type of explosion.

He was awarded the Purple Heart.

He was originally interred overseas and was later repatriated here on January 13, 1950.

Service # 32919566

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.
