Louis, an Army PFC was killed during World War II while serving in Europe. He was posthumously awarded the silver star for his actions in Italy by HQ, 88th Infantry Division, General Order No. 81 (1945). Nothing is known at this time about the circumstances. Anyone with the facts - please advise.

His physical description at induction is 6 feet tall, 150 pounds, blonde hair and blue eyes.

Nothing is known about DeEtta other than she remarried and has several children of that marriage. Details would be appreciated.

Louis and DeEtta's only child is Betty Ann (Elizabeth Anne). I need information about her and any spouse and children. All help will be appreciated.
