The Allies were pushing the Germans back into their homeland, when they made a massive counterattack on the French-German border.

Bill was one of those casualties.
MAJOR AWARDS/DECORATIONS: The only known award is The Purple Heart awarded to all casualties, whether KIA or wounded. Bill could not have been over twenty one years of age.
