PFC Loren Everett Percy was born 13 Oct 1925 in Marion, Indiana. He was the 3rd of 3 children born to Raymond Clifford and Jocie (King) Percy. His father worked in an iron foundry reporting a 1939 income of $940 for 52 weeks work. That same year his mother was working as a packer in a "glass house" and reported a 1939 income of $720 for 40 weeks work.

Loren was drafted in December 1943. After his military training he was sent to Europe. We are unsure when, but he was assigned to K Company 116th Infantry. Loren was promoted to PFC on 18 Aug 1944. PFC Percy was killed in action on 30 Aug 1944.

PFC Percy was repatriated in 1948 and re-interred in Estates of Serenity in Marion, Indiana.

Loren's older brother, Lester Lamoine Percy, served in the U.S. Army, 1943-1945.
