PFC Andrew Pereiro
PFC Andrew Pereiro was born in Mera, Oleros, Coruna, Spain in 1923. We don't know much about the family but they appear to have immigrated from Spain in 1939. His mother was Laura Garcia de Pereiro and he had one brother, Juan Pereiro who also served. Both his mother and brother were naturalized in 1944.
Drafted in May 1943, he was ultimately assigned to L Company 116th Infantry on 22 Jun 1944.
