LaVern Fred Sackett (1922–1944) #Notables
I have posted a blog "A real soldier just died, men." on the Sackett Family Association Blog at https://thesackettfamilyassociationblog.blogspot.com/ .
LaVern Fred Sackett was killed in action on 8 December 1944 while serving as a sergeant in the American Expeditionary Force in Germany during the Second World War.
War correspondent Jack Bell's compelling account, reproduced in full in the blog, appeared in a number of American newspapers.
LaVern's son is Sackett Family Association member #100 Fred Sackett.
