Looking for info on Pvt. William Metz. Last year after my mother in law died we were searching through belongings and found her brother William Metz's Purple Heart award along with a picture of her mother in church kneeling with 2 unknown military people.I have found out he was in the 15th infantry 3rd division and he died on Sept 16,1944.He is buried at Epinal France.Is there a way to find out how he received the Purple Heart and some history as to what he did and went through? This must have been extremely painful to the family as the papers were tucked away and it was never spoken about.
