Saul was drafted in October 1943. After his military training he was sent to Europe and transferred from the replacement depot to I Company 116th Infantry on 7 Aug 1944. Having already attained the rank of T5, there was apparently a need to cross-level him and he was transferred to L Company 116th Infantry on 11 Aug 1944. T5 Sloane fought with the unit until he was briefly captured on 29 Aug 1944 in the attack to liberate Brest but returned to duty after the Germans surrendered. He was injured and evacuated to hospital on 22 Sep 1944. T5 Sloane did not return to the unit until 22 Dec 1944 when he was reassigned as a rifleman. He then fought with the unit until killed in action in the vicinity of Monchengladbach, Germany on 1 Mar 1945.
T5 Sloane was repatriated in 1949 and re-interred in the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego, California.
