Reuben was drafted in September 1943. After completing his basic military training he was sent to the European theater and on 16 Jun 1944 was transferred from the replacement depot to B Company 116th Infantry. He fought with the unit until wounded on 30 Jul 1944 and was then evacuated to hospital. PVT Post returned to the unit on 19 Sep 1944. He was again evacuated to hospital on 19 Oct 1944 but this injury was apparently not combat related. PVT Post once again returned to the unit on 27 Oct 1944. He was injured again, again not combat related, on 14 Nov 1944 and again evacuated to hospital. PVT Post was transferred from the replacement depot back to the unit on 12 Dec 1944. Reuben was promoted to PFC on 12 Feb 1945. PFC Post was killed in action on 25 Feb 1945.
PFC Post was repatriated in 1948 and re-interred in Chisago Memorial Park in Chisago City, Minnesota.
Brothers, Gunnar and Robert Stanley Post both served in the U.S. Army during WW2.
