PVT John Albert Ware
John was drafted in October 1943 and PVT Ware was sent overseas and assigned to I Company 116th Infantry on 22 Jun 1944. PVT Ware was killed in action on 13 Jul 1944 near Saint-Lo, France.
After the war his body was brought home and interred in Barratts Chapel Cemetery in Frederica, Delaware.
A quick note about his unit of assignment. I Company is indicated on both the morning reports and on the headstone application. Only the note on the FindAGrave memorial indicates assignment to L Company. We don't believe he was assigned to L Company and can not find the source of that information. Also, we can find no indication that he is closely related to CPT Robert Barnes Ware.
