This man was KIA in WWII. He was in the 104th Infantry Division, Timberwolves and died in Germany or near Zundert. He was Cherokee and he was also from North Carolina. He received the Silver Star.
I was notified of the possibility that this man may be interred in another Jenkins (Creek) Cemetery located in/near either Bryson City, Whittier, or Cherokee. The headstone shipment card says it was shipped to Cherokee.
There is some information online about his parents posthumously receiving the Silver Star for his heroism in action in Germany. When ammunition ran low he volunteered to leave the foxhole to get more ammunition. He was mortally wounded as he ran, but kept going to his destination until death took him.
