Mandell Newmark (1923-1945)

The theme for the 70th Carnival of Genealogy is Uncle, Uncle!

There are several uncles I could write about, but with the deadline for this carnival being April 15th, that made one uncle most appropriate.

My paternal grandfather’s brother, Mandell Newmark, was born Jan 31, 1923. He was almost certainly named after his great-grandfather Mandell Mojsabovski. He enlisted in the army on Feb 22, 1943, and served as a Sgt. Technician Fifth Grade, in the 163rd infantry. He was killed in action on April 15, 1945. Less than a month prior to VE day. I posted a couple more photographs of him a month ago, and last December.
