Daniel was drafted in January 1943. After his basic training he was sent to other unknown units and promoted to SGT before being transferred from the replacement depot to B Company 116th Infantry on 11 Aug 1944. SGT Mulligan was killed in action on 27 Aug 1944. SGT Mulligan was awarded the Silver Star but we do not know the particulars of that award.
SGT Mulligan was repatriated in 1948 and re-interred in All Souls Cemetery in Pleasantville, New York where he rests forever near family.
His maternal uncle, John Joseph Collins, served in the U.S. Navy from 1943 to 1946. His sister, Rita Joan Mulligan married a West Point graduate, Kenneth James Knowles, who retired from the U.S. Army as a LTC.
