PVT Ross Phillips Eldredge
Ross was drafted in March 1944. He had been working for a food packer so that might be one reason he was drafted relatively late in the war. Trained and sent overseas, he was assigned to B Company on 10 Oct 1944. He was injured on 29 Oct 1944 seriously enough to be sent to the hospital and not return to the unit until 29 Nov 1944. PVT Eldredge was killed in action on 3 Dec 1944.
PVT Eldredge is buried in the Dayton Cemetery in Dayton, Idaho. He and Ruby had no children. Ruby remarried.
