|Thomas at Worcester Academy, 1940|
Thomas may have already been in Pennsylvania attending school when he voluntarily enlisted in 1941 or 1942. After his basic military training he was assigned to L Company 116th Infantry. We believe he was with the unit for the amphibious assault at Omaha Beach on 6 Jun 1944. He fought with the unit until wounded on 15 Jul 1944 and he was evacuated to hospital. PFC Power died of his wound(s) on 20 Jul 1944.
PFC Power rests forever in the Brittany American Cemetery.
