Leon A. Boes, Herrick South Dakota
I am trying to find information concerning my uncle, PFC Leon A. Boes from Herrick, South Dakota. I believe his SS number is 37147102. I have been told that he landed on Utah beach on D-day (I haven't been able to verify this yet though) and was later killed in France on or about 24, July 1944. He is listed at KIA, but he may have also been wounded. I do not know what unit he was with. Can someone direct me to some additional internet links or sources that will help identify the specific unit? I have read the other messages about the source for IDPF. Unfortunately, I also read that it takes approx 6 months to get the IDF files and I was hoping for some basic information by July 4th.
