SGT Quinton Edwin Ogle was born 26 Jun 1924 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was the youngest of the 4 sons born to William Hercules and Rachel (Beler) Ogle. His father had worked as a fireman and laborer in the oil industry in various places in Oklahoma before moving the family to Los Angeles County, California after 1940. Quinton was unemployed when he registered for the draft in early 1942.

When he was drafted in March 1943, Quinton was working in a foundry. After his initial training he was sent to England and assigned to A Company 116th Infantry. Despite heavy losses in A Company on D-Day PVT Ogle was not promoted until he was promoted to SGT on 13 Sep 1944. It is possible that he was not assigned to A Company on D-Day. SGT Ogle was killed in action on 30 Sep 1944.

SGT Ogle was repatriated and re-interred in Inglewood Park Cemetery in Inglewood, California near his father and a brother.

Great-grandfather Armistead H. Beler served as a PVT in 6th Battalion Mississippi Cavalry during the Civil War.
