Sunday’s Obituary – James Privoznik WWII

?????????????????????? Tomorrow is Veterans Day and we honor all those who served our country in the armed forces.

Do you have obituaries and memorial notices for your veterans? This one is for Jennifer Holik’s cousin, James Privoznik, who fought in the 90th Division, 790th Ordnance unit until the last 14 days of his life when Patton needed infantrymen during the Battle of the Bulge. Then James was transferred within the 90th to the 358th Infantry Regiment. He was killed on January 11, 1945 near Bras, Belgium.

Today we honor his service and sacrifice.

Who are you honoring and remembering this weekend as Veterans Day approaches? How are you honoring their memory? Are you writing their stories? Doing research? Sharing photographs? Let us know in the comments.
