|The next few photos were furnished by David Wilson, Nephew of Sgt R. C.
Payne, C Company 254th Infantry Regiment who was killed in action on 19
Mar 1945 near Ensheim, Germany. Mr Wilson hopes that someone will
recognize these photos of Sgt Payne and be able to provide information about
the circumstances surrounding Sgt Payne's death and his wartime experiences.
You can contact Mr. Wilson by e-mail at email@example.com or by regular mail
at 2014 Cedar Ridge, Harrison, Arkansas 72601 or by telephone 870-741-4647.

undergoing training at Camp Van Dorn, MS.)
