PVT Edward F. Koscelnak was born 29 Jan 1924 in Trybsz, Poland the first child of Frank Stephen and Mary Ann (Polvaca) Koscelnak.
Edward was drafted in October 1943. After his initial training he was sent to England. We aren't certain but he may have been assigned to I Company 116th Infantry prior to the amphibious assault on Omaha Beach. There is no mention of him in the morning report until he is noted as being killed in action on 8 Sep 1944.
PVT Koscelnak is buried in the Brittany American Cemetery. Brother Stephen Koscelnak served in the U.S. Air Force in Korea, 1952-1954.
