Soldiers

This page is dedicated to Private James J. Currin


Private Currin was a 1st Battalion Pathfinder. He was killed in action during the battle at La Fiere Bridge on D-Day. (The incident in which he was killed is written about in Robert Murphy's book NO BETTER PLACE TO DIE - first paragraph on page 55.)

Before going overseas, his wife followed him from camp to camp until she became pregnant. He then took her home to stay with her mother in Durham, NC. He knew that he might get caught on the way back to camp so he left his "jump jacket" because the did not want to get caught wearing it. The family has it to this day.
