Donald Chambers

Library staff now believe that PFC Chambers was killed in the Battle of Hurtgen Forest, probably as a member of the Keystone Division, 28th Infantry. As no remains were recovered, we surmise that he was killed in an artillery barrage. We base this on the discovery of his dog tags and other items found by a Belgian farmer years after the war. There is a gravestone at a family plot at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Westchester, New York, but we suspect there are no remains interred. We remember your sacrifice.
