PVT Clifford Gabrellas

PVT Clifford Gabrellas was born 25 Nov 1922 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Christos Peter and Mary (Pappas) Gabrellas.  Both parents were Greek immigrants. Christos was a chef and reported a 1939 income of $1270.

When drafted in March 1943, Clifford may have been working as a clerk or secretary.  Sent to Europe, Clifford may have been assigned to K Company 116th Infantry prior to the D-Day landings.  PVT Gabrellas was killed in action on 25 Aug 1944.

PVT Gabrellas is buried in the Brittany American Cemetery.  His brother James also served through the war.
