Biography[edit | edit source]

He dropped with the rest of the 101st Airborne into Normandy, France on D-Day. He was then rounded up by a Colonel to go and defend the town of Ramelle. He and his comrades are joined by Captain John H. Miller and his men.

During the Battle of Ramelle, he was positioned on a hole with Rice, Miller, Reiben, Ryan and Lyle and he helped to disable a German Tiger Tank with Rice by blowing off the treads with Sticky Bombs. When the Germans responded with a 20mm, he was one of the men falling back to the Alamo. On his way, he was killed by the opposing German forces.
