I am researching the life of Alfred L Schellenger, of St Louis, MO. Alfred L was born in Illinois in 1922, but removed to St Louis, MO prior to his induction into the US Army 27 Jan 1943 at Jefferson Barracks. Alfred L served with the 345th IR, 87th ID before he was killed in action on 4 Mar 1945 in fighting along the Kyll River in Germany.
There is an obit avail at the St Louis Public Library as follows:
Schellinger, (Pvt) Alfred L.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch 1945 [KIA] Article 3/19 p4A, (photo) Article 3/20 p5A
Request a look-up of this obit for this fallen American hero.
