Bob, Thanks again. I don't believe that these two Lester Mathison's are the right ones as the dates would be wrong to have been in WWII. I think the one I am looking for would have been in his early to mid 20's in 1944. The S. Dakota one comes closest, but the one I am looking for supposedly died in Germany in Sept of 44 and was buried there. Are there any cemeteries of American burials in Germany? I don't remember my history too well, was there a major battle in Aug or Sept of 44 in Germany?
