SGT George Evert Jones Jr
SGT George Evert Jones Jr was born 3 Jan 1920 in Indianapolis, Indiana to George Evert and Icie (Evans) Jones. His father was a salesman.
George was drafted in November 1941. After his basic training he was assigned to Headquarters Company 2nd Battalion 116th Infantry, perhaps before the unit departed for England in September 1942. If so, he would have trained for and taken part in the amphibious assault place on 6 Jun 1944. SGT Jones was killed in action on 22 Oct 1944.
