PVT John J Doran

PVT John J. Doran, b. 6 Mar 1923 - d. 30 Aug 1944. Son of Bernard and Mary (Mahoney) Doran of Harrison, New Jersey he had 7 siblings. This photo is John working at a CCC camp in Montana before the war. Entering service in 1942, PVT Doran was assigned to K Company 116th Infantry when killed. A note here, the morning report shows him as in K Company but his family apparently believed he was in M Company and he might have been for a time prior to the D-Day landings.  He is buried in the Brittany American Cemetery.
