  • Notes 
    • Hansel Hammond in Outfit that Wins High Praise
      "Pvt. Hansel R. Hammond is now fighting in France with the famous fighting 90th Division, one of the first divisions to land in the Invasion of the Continent. His Regiment, commanded by Colonel Christian W. Clarke, Jr., and his division, have received much praise for magnificent contributions to the Battle of France. The 90th Division gained its fame in combat among the hedgerows of Normandy in the early days of the Invasion and later the famous Battle of Foret de Mont Castre. This same outfit figured in the capture of the important city of LeMans and was instrumental in closing the bloody Falaise Gap and the resulting capture of several thousand German prisoners."
      Pvt. Hammond joined the Division March, 1942, and has participated in some of this division's many big battles across France.
      This soldier is Field Lineman in Communications Platoon. He was awarded the Bronze Star for bravery and the Purple Heart for wounds at the Battle of the Bulge
