My husband's grandfather Pvt 1st class
PASQUALE J PATRUNO was also in the 29th MAR 3-I sixth division. Machine Gunner.
I am trying to find out some stories about him from Quadalcanal and Okinawa.
He was awarded the Purple Heart for injuries at Okinawa 12 April 1945. He also has a bronze star.
I will definately keep the Doerr name in mind while researching.
