|Logan & Vivian on their wedding day|
It was probably very soon after his marriage that Logan was drafted. After his basic military training, he was sent to the European theater and was transferred from the replacement depot to I Company 116th Infantry on 16 Jul 1944. PVT Powell was promoted to PFC on 14 Aug 1944. PFC Powell was killed in action on 25 Aug 1944 as the 29th Division attacked the Germans in Brest, France.
PFC Powell now rests forever in the Brittany American Cemetery.
Grandfather, Lewis U. Smith, served as a PVT in I Company 48th Missouri Volunteers (USA) in the Civil War.
