Looking for Information:
Frank Avitabile, who served in the 13th Infantry Regiment Service Company.
I have a picture of my uncle Frank Avitabile standing with a friend next to a truck that is identified as: 13th Infanty Service Co.
Maybe somebody can help me. I have been looking for information about my Uncle Frank (Avitabile). He joined the army around December 8, 1941. I know that he was in North or South Carolina soon after he enlisted. He was a mechanic and also was involved with motorcycles in the service.
He was killed in early April 1945.
His records were lost at the Archives fire.
His I.D. Number is: ID: 32063208.
He was from Bergen County, NJ.
I was hoping I could find someone with information. I have his Bronze Star Medal, but I do not know where he received it.
Please assist me if you can.
