Leroy was drafted, probably late in 1942 or early in 1943. We do not know what assignment(s) he had immediately after completing his basic training but on 17 Jul 1944 he was transferred from the replacement depot to A Company 116th Infantry and was a PVT at that time. He was wounded and evacuated to hospital and died of his wound(s) there on 27 Aug 1944.
PFC No Neck was repatriated in 1949 and re-interred in the Black Hills National Cemetery in Sturgis, South Dakota.
