Inquiry of 6th Marine Division Soldier Charles Fay Caldwell
On Veterans Day, 11 November, 2011, my Uncle, Charles Fay Caldwell, will posthumously receive recognition for his actions in the Battle of Okinawa. Charles is one of Seven Brothers who served during WWII in either the European or Pacific Conflict. His Citation and Medals will be presented to his surviving Brothers by 9th District United States Congresswoman Sue Myrick.
I am searching for any information or personal recollections from any of his fellow soldiers who might have fought alongside him or in the same Battles.
Charles was Wounded in Battle (head wound) on May 21, 1945 and subsequently died from those wounds on June 12, 1945. He was assigned to:
6th Marine Division
He may have been a Machine Gunner.
I have read the broader accounts of the actions of the 6th Marine Division, but hope to find some contacts or discussions with survivors who might have further details on Company A, and Charles.
I sincerely appreciate your consideration in this matter.
