    My Grandfather, a great man: Lawrence S Palmissano passed over 10 years ago. I was very close to him and he only spoke of WWII late in his life. From what I know he was captured by the Nazi Army in Italy and was sent to Stalag 7B and was a prisoner for 513 days. Below is some other info about him. If anyone knows anything about him or his service record, or anything about his regiment it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    PVT Lawrence S Palmissano belonged to H Company, 2nd Battalion, 157th Infantry Regiment.

    He is listed as MIA on 23 February 1944 in the Adjutant's Notebook.

    Screenshot is attached. He is third from the bottom.

    You are very welcome.

    If you don't have it, you should buy "The Rock of Anzio," Flint Whitlock's excellent history of the 45th.

    We can always count on Dave. He must live in a warehouse.
