    Stephen Lonczak (paternal grandfather), 179th Infantry. I know he served from Sicily to European. Combat medic.

    Chester Kusi (great uncle), served in 362nd AAF. Was shot down and died in the last day’s of the Battle of the bulge.

    Alexander (Alex) Kusi (maternal grandfather). Infantry. Not sure where or when he served.

    Thanks to anyone who can help. I don’t want to forget their sacrifices.

    So he flew a P47D-28 Thunderbolt for the 362nd Fighter Group, 379th Fighter Squadron out of Etain, France. He was shot down on 22 or 23 Jan 1945 (MACR form and witness statement have different dates) near Prum, Germany by anti-aircraft fire.
