St. Lo, France 1944 and question on grave markers
Trying to find information on my uncle's service during world war ii.His name was Joseph A. Paulewicz and was a Private First Class in the United States Army.According to a newspaper article from that era, he had just arrived in England and had been inducted into the Army April 24, 1941.He was stationed at Camp Meade and Norfolk News, Virginia before being shipped overseas.He received the Purple Heart for wounds sustained in action at St. Lo, France in 1944 according to my late grandfather (also a wwii vet) and was supposedly involved in D-Day.Would anyone have any ideas as to which unit he could have been from. I'm thinking the 29th Infantry Division.He was from Pennsylvania.
Also, for a veteran to have a grave marker in a cemetery, would someone have to view his discharge papers to get him the marker, if so who would have had to view them and would they have copies do you think ?
