" This record is a Cenotaph In His honor ! "

Gordon, who resided at 218 West Seventeenth Street, Wilmington, Delaware, served as a Staff Sergeant with the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II.

He was born with the name " Gordon Morris GOLDSTEIN " however when he and his brother, Charles Kenneth Goldstein, joined the Army they " both " changed their last name to " GORDONI " more than likely due to possibly being captured by the German Army during the war since " Gordoni " was an Italian name instead of a Jewish name.

He was "Killed In Action" in a raid over Heligoland, Germany.

He had served in the Air Corps for one year and three months at the time of his death and was decorated with a Air Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters.

His brother, Charles Kenneth Goldstein, was also "Killed In Action" during the war.

Son of Nathan Goldstein and Lillian Abramson Goldstein.

Husband of Adele Peacock Goldstein.
