PFC Vincent F. Mazzaferri was born 20 Mar 1923 in San Francisco, California to John and Frances (Ruggero) Mazzaferri.  Not much is known about this soldier or his family.

Vincent was apparently working as a carpenter's assistant or apprentice when he was drafted in late April 1943. We don't know much about his military assignments until he was transferred from the replacement depot to A Company 116th Infantry on 5 Mar 1945.  PFC Mazzaferri was killed in action on 24 Apr 1945.

PFC Mazzaferri is buried in the Netherlands American Cemetery.
