PFC Donald Eugene Culver was born 22 Oct 1924 in Uniontown, Pennsylvania to Germaine Bennett and Emma (Murphy) Culver. His father worked variously as an insurance agent and manager of a grocery store.
In May 1943 when Donald was drafted he had graduated from high school and was working as a "checker" in a grocery (likely his father's). Sent overseas on 11 Aug 1944 he was transferred from the replacement depot to C Company 116th Infantry. He was killed in action just one month later on 11 Sep 1944.
PFC Culver is buried in the Brittany American Cemetery.
