PFC Donald Eugene Culver

PFC Donald Eugene Culver was born 22 Oct 1924 in Uniontown, Pennsylvania to Germaine Bennett and Emma (Murphy) Culver. His father worked variously as an insurance agent and manager of a grocery store.

In May 1943 when Donald was drafted he had graduated from high school and was working as a "checker" in a grocery (likely his father's).  Sent overseas on 11 Aug 1944 he was transferred from the replacement depot to C Company 116th Infantry.  He was killed in action just one month later on 11 Sep 1944.

PFC Culver is buried in the Brittany American Cemetery.
