PFC Owen Hulon Short
In this photo Hulon is shown wearing an armor division shoulder insignia. He was not assigned to C Company 116th Infantry until 10 Jul 1944 so he may have been assigned as an infantryman in an armored unit, wounded and reassigned when returned from hospital. This was not unusual. PFC Owen Hulon Short was killed in action on 6 Aug 1944 near Vire, France. He is buried in the Brittany American Cemetery.
