PFC Albino Castro Hernandez

PFC Albino Castro Hernandez was born 16 Dec 1915 in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico to Giberto and Catarino (Castro) Hernandez.

Albino entered the service and was sent to England.  We believe he was assigned to G Company 116th Infantry prior to 6 Jun 1944 and participated in the D-Day amphibious assault on Omaha Beach.  He was wounded 8 Aug 1944 and sent to the hospital.  He did not return to the unit, from the replacment depot, until 14 Nov 1944. PFC Hernandez was killed in action just 2 weeks later on 28 Nov 1944.

PFC Hernandez was repatriated in 1948 and now rests forever in San Fernando Cemetery #2 in San Antonio, Texas.
