Quirino Chavez, 180th Regiment, 45th Infantry Division, killed in action November 9th, 1943, probably in a battle to take Venafro, Italy. He was buried December 9, 1948, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It took five years to bring his remains back stateside for burial.
Update: A million thanks to K. Martin for getting a photo of my Uncle Quirino's grave in Santa Fe as soon as I requested it.
