Note:

  1. Based on our reading of "The 4th Armored Division in the Encirclement of Nancy" by Christopher R. Gabel and "Patton's Vanguard: The United States Army Fourth Armored Division" by Don M Fox, we believe we can state that Staff Sgt. Clayton died in the fighting newr Arracourt, France, probably in the engagements near Hill 265.
