Louis entered the Army in February 1943. After attending training including Officer Candidate School, he was sent to the European theater. 2LT Monk was transferred from the replacement depot to D Company 116th Infantry on 16 Jun 1944. He was killed in action on 1 Jul 1944.
2LT Monk was repatriated and re-interred in Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia.
Louis may have been the youngest officer of the 116th who died in WW2 as he was not quite 19 when he died.
