PVT Carl W. Flack

PVT Carl W. Flack Was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1907 the son of Karl and Gertrude (Fritz) Flack. His father was a painter, later auto painter.  His parents were apparently divorced about 1916 and both remarried later.  Both parents were immigrants. In 1931 Carl married Florence C. Fielitz. 

Carl was drafted in June 1943 and after training was sent overseas.  It is likely that he served with another unit before being sent to the replacement depot and transferred from there to E Company 116th Infantry on 24 Oct 1944.  He was killed in action on 24 Nov 1944.

PVT Flack is buried in the Netherlands American Cemetery
