I am researching Walter Firestine of Pennsylvania who was killed in action on December 31, 1944 during the Battle of the Bulge. Walter is buried in the American Cemetery at Henri-Chapelle, Belgium.
He may have had a twin brother named Howard. I have no additional details on Howard other than his appearance in the 1930 census.He and Walter were both listed as age 9.
An older sibling was Colonel W. Firestine (a very unusual name) who also served during WW-II and died in 1992.He is buried in the Indiantown Gap [PA] National Cemetery.
Anyone with additional details on the family can contact me at Jumpmaster@508pir.org
