PVT David M. Schneiderman

PVT David M. Schneiderman was the son of Harry Schneiderman and we believe that he was born 11 Jun 1918 in Brooklyn, New York. We do not know anything of his family but that his father lived at 309 East 3rd Street in Brooklyn for at least 1-year (1945-1946).

David was probably drafted in late 1943 or early 1944. After his basic training he was sent to the European theater. PVT Schneiderman was transferred from the replacement depot to C Company 116th Infantry on 5 Jul 1944. He was wounded the very next day, 6 Jul 1944, and evacuated to hospital. He was returned to the unit from the replacement depot on 9 Sep 1944 and participated in the fight to liberate Brest, France. PVT Schneiderman was killed in action near Aachen, Germany on 13 Oct 1944.

PVT Schneiderman rests forever in the Henri-Chappelle American Cemetery.
