2LT Herman G Hilscher
2LT Herman G Hilscher, b. 10 Oct 1918 - d. 6 Jun 1944, son of Joseph A and Louise (Ganzert) Hilscher. His father was a veteran of the Spanish American War and his brother Raymond was a Seaman 2nd Class serving in the Navy. We don't often find newspaper articles on our soldiers but of those we do find, this is pretty typical. 2LT Hilscher was serving with F Company 116th on D-Day and he rests at the the Normandy American Cemetery.
