CPL Clarence Lamar Coates
We don't know when Clarence began his military service. The morning report is a bit unclear on when or to which unit he was assigned but he may have been assigned first to B Company 116th Infantry and then D Company. This occurred on 10 and 13 Jun 1944. CPL Coates was killed in action on 20 Jun 1944.
CPL Coates is buried in the Normandy American Cemetery and has a cenotaph in Casa Cemetery in Casa, Arkansas.
