PVT Harold Beck
Harold was drafted in November 1943. It appears that he was assigned to B Company 116th Infantry before D-Day and survived uninjured until 14 Sep 1944 when he went to hospital. He returned to B Company on 15 Nov 1944. Originally thought to be missing in action he was found to have been killed in action on 3 Dec 1944.
PVT Beck's body was repatriated and he is buried in the Long Island National Cemetery.
Milton Beck had served in WWI as a Corporal in C Company 137th Engineers and is also buried in the Long Island National Cemetery.
