PVT Perry Gene Dougan
PVT Perry Gene Dougan was born in 1925 to Carl and Ethel Dougan.
Perry was drafted in September 1943. Perry was assigned to F Company 116th Infantry from the replacement depot on 23 Jul 1944. The morning report shows PVT Dougan as killed in action on 1 Aug but later official documents give his date of death as 2 Aug 1944. There are often such "discrepancies" due to the confusion that exists in that combat environment.
