On November 1st, 2017, I visited the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach. It was very moving to see the lines of white crosses. I had the honor to place a Coast Guard Flag and render a salute at the grave site of this fallen Coast Guardsman. With many thanks for your sacrifice. CWO4 Terry Manning

According to the rejected 1950 PA compensation form filled out by his widow, he served domestically from Nov 7, 1943 to April 15, 1944. Then, he serving overseas from April 30, 1944 to his death. Perhaps he was too late to train for the D-Day invasion.
