PVT Joseph Edward Havel

PVT Joseph Edward Havel was born 12 Nov 1917 in Chicago, Illinois to Edward James and Anna (Konopasek) Havel.  On 1 Aug 1940 he married Mary Barbara Patrycka.

After entering the service, probably in 1943, he was sent to Europe and on 9 Aug 1944 he was transferred from the replacement depot to E Company 116th Infantry.  He probably made that move with then PVT Andrew L. Hauser. However, Joseph stayed with E Company and was killed in action on 30 Aug 1944. 

PVT Havel is buried in the Brittany American Cemetery.  His wife, Mary, did re-marry after the war.
