Statement of Paul Cain


Enlistment Records indicate that John H. CARR (born 1921) enlisted in 1943 from Lubbock Texas. He gave his country of residence as Okfuskee, Oklahoma. He was allocated Serial Number 38346970.


Paul Cain recalls (Feb. 2011) subject as "Dan CAR" thus:

"The information on Dan Car I got from Dan Valles who was Car's squad leader in "K" Company 34th.  Dan Valles is now deceased as is Jim Sullivan who was also present at same time & place.  I could have been (incorrect) spelling Car's name."

Cain's statement of date and circumstance of death is irrefutable.
