Paul was born and raised in Erie Pennsylvania. Paul is listed on the tablets of the missing, so his body was never found. His family never knew he died on the USS Rohna, since our government kept this sinking by the Germans a secret for decades. His younger brother Frank died as a POW in Korea, and his body never came home either. God bless all this family.
(President Trump has negotiated the return of the bodies of the POWs from Korea, so now we have hope Frank will return.)
You will always be remembered too, Paul. Your family loves you and your country thanks you .
