PVT Aldie Justice Jr was born in 1919 in McDowell County, West Virginia.  He was working as a miner when he was drafted in January 1941. We don't know what happened in the interim but on 13 Jul 1944 PVT Justice was transferred from the replacement depot to E Company 116th Infantry.  Aldie was a non-battle casualty the very next day (14 Jul 1944) and evacuated to hospital. Aldie returned to his unit from the hospital on 26 Jul 1944.  PVT Justice was killed in action on 30 Jul 1944.

PVT Justice is buried in the Normandy American Cemetery
