I never got to know my uncle Nicky because he died years before I was born but my Dad, his oldest brother, spoke about him a few times. Seems Dad had trouble talking about his brother.
Uncle Nicky went to war as a young man, only 19. He was a medic in the 60th Medic Special Brigade. He was killed on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. First the family was told that he was listed as MIA and later KIA. It was reported that there was evidence that he had been killed. The family could never find out what that evidence was. His body was never recovered. His name is listed on the Walls of the Missing monument in Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in France.
Uncle Nicky left behind his mother, Nannie, two brothers, John and Roy and a sister, Florence.
