PVT William B. Brooks
After William entered the service he was sent overseas. We think that he was assigned to H Company 116th Infantry prior to the D-Day landings. He was a light mortar crewman. He was with that unit when he was killed in action on 1 Sep 1944.
PVT Brooks is buried in Fairlawn Cemetery in Decatur, Illinois along with many family members.
