After more reading, I did indeed find where he died:Caument, France.He was originally buried in the U.S. cemetery #1 at St. Laurent.After the war, he was removed to East Tawas, Michigan.
The most interesting portions of this file, as least to me, are the correspondences to the Army from his widow. They are quite touching.She wanted all of the details, where, how, was anyone with him?And she was bound and determined to find this out.Whether or not she was sucessful, I don't know.
From a genealogical standpoint, there is some relevant info.From a personal standpoint, this is just so wonderful.Through her letters to the Army, I'm able to see how much she loved my mother's uncle.
On an historical question:How long was the "usual" tour of duty during WWII, or was there one?
