Associates of the 7th Armored Division have been trying to locate PFC. Wayne G.
Claude for quite some time now.

Born in Wall Lake, Wright County, Iowa, he entered the military on May 22, 1942.

Assigned as a Light Machine Gunner to Company F, 87th Cavalry Reconnaissance
Squadron (Mechanized) 7th Armored Division.

He sacraficed his life near Rainville, Vosges Department, Lorraine, France.


According to the 7th Armored Division Association historian Wesley Johnston:

The FindAGrave page has his death in the wrong location. 7th Armored Division was never in the Vosges Department, and at the time that he was killed no American unit was anywhere within 200 miles of the Vosges Department.

He was killed along the route from Dourdan to Roinville (in the Essonne Department) to Mauchamps. But I do not yet know the exact location.
