George R. Connor


Killed in Action 4 January, 1945, near Wardin, Belgium 

Pvt. Connor died from a severe head wound on a bitterly cold, snowy day during a German counterattack, preceded by a devastating artillery barrage. The Germans did not break through but the cost was dear. Company B suffered its greatest one-day losses ever: thirteen men were killed, 12 were wounded, and 16 went missing.
