A Company, 1st BN, 506th PIR Roster
January 1945

This A Company, 1st Battalion, 506th PIR Roster was handwritten in the field,
sometime after January 10, 1945, when PVT David Diener was killed, but before
January 15, 1945, when the A Company CO, CPT Roy M. Kessler, was killed.
NOTE: the original roster contained the Army Serial Number for everyone on the list;
however, these numbers have been removed to protect the privacy of those listed.
