PFC Herman Eugene Davis

PFC Herman Eugene Davis was born 12 May 1918 in Crowell, Texas to Robert Earl and Mattie Leona (Neely) Davis.  His father farmed along with his family of 8.

We don't know when Herman entered service but it appears that he might have been assigned to I Company 116th Infantry prior to the D-Day landing. He was promoted to PFC on 1 Oct 1944.  It seems that he avoided injury until 24 Nov 1944 when he was sent to the hospital (non-battle injury).  On 18 Dec 1944 he returned to the unit via the replacement depot.  Seriously wounded on 27 Feb 1945 he was again evacuated to the hospital.  He died of his wounds on 3 Mar 1945.

In 1949 his body was returned to his family and he was buried in the Crowell Cemetery in Crowell, Texas.
