Notes:

  1. Based on our reading of "Four Stars of Valor: The Combat History of the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment in World War II" by Phil Nordyke and " No Better Place to Die: Ste. Mere-Eglise, June 1944 -- The Battle for La Fiere Bridge" by Robert M. Murphy, we believe we can state that Staff Sergeant Ward died of his wounds in the combat at or near La Fiere Bridge after parachuting into the Normandy battlefield.
