PVT Stanley John Woinicz
Stanley was likely drafted in May 1918 and then assigned to B Company 116th Infantry. He sailed with the unit for France aboard the USS Finland. The ship departed Hoboken, New Jersey on 15 Jun 1918 and took almost 2 weeks to transit the Atlantic Ocean, arriving in the port of Saint Nazaire, France on 28 Jun 1918. Stanley participated with his unit in the trench warfare training that the 29th Division experienced. He was still with the unit when a major offensive began on 8 Oct 1918 and was killed in action on 15 Oct 1918.
PVT Woinicz now rests forever in the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery.
