Chester Mele died March 27, 2007. Mr. Mele was a replacement in mid-July, '44 and was my father's ammunition carrier in the second platoon ( machine guns)of 358/D. He and Dad were wounded at the same time on Nov. 16 by an artillery shell. Although Dad never returned to the Company, Chester did return in Dec. and served thru the rest of the war.
I met him in Hesperia, Ca. in 2001 and Chester attended his first and only 90th reunion in San Antonio that year.
God Bless him for his service and sacrifice.
