TSGT Robert W. Andrews
Robert was drafted in June 1941. We do not know to what other units he had been assigned but he was a SGT when transferred from the replacement depot to L Company 116th Infantry on 3 Sep 1944. The morning report notes his promotion to SSG on 1 Nov 1944 and he was a TSGT when killed in action on 3 Dec 1944. I should note that it appears that it is believed he was killed by a sniper. We can not confirm that.
TSGT Andrews is buried in Trivoli Cemetery in Trivoli, Illinois.
