Pfc. Misamore fought with 357/F from June 8 until his death on October 1. The Germans were frantic by this point of the 3rd Army advance and threw some tough and experienced infantry into the Metz fight. The G.I.'s were firing flares during the evenings in order to reveal the night incursions of the enemy. Misamore, although only minimally trained on the flare's mechanism, was setting one when it fired and struck him in the head, killing him instantly.
