PVT Leonard C. Krugis

PVT Leonard C. Krugis was born 15 Mar 1925 in Cleveland, Ohio the youngest of four children of Andrew George and Mary Krugis.

Leonard was drafted in August 1943.  He might have been assigned to A Company 46th Infantry before he was shipped overseas. Sent to England, Leonard was assigned to F Company 116th Infantry.  He might not have had much time to train with the unit for the amphibious assault that took place on 6 Jun 1944 but he survived that and fought on with the unit until killed in action on 19 Jun 1944 (D+13).

PVT Krugis was repatriated in 1948 and is buried Calvary Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio.  Leonard's older brother, Alfred, served in the Marine Corps during the war.
