Richard J Hughes was probably a replacement in Easy Comapny 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division. This company is also known as Band of Brothers.

He was killed on January 9th, 1945 just outside Bastogne (during the battle of the Bulge).

I adopted his grave on the American cemetery in Henri-Chapelle, Belgium. I am looking for more information about him and, if possible, familymembers.
