My cousin, Julius E. Greenberg, b. New York City, 1920, was killed in
action at age 23 while serving in the U.S. Army in North Africa. When in
1996 Julius's sister asked me to locate f'urther information about his
death, I wrote to the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC), located at
that time in St. Louis, MO--see below for the name, address, email address
of the current repository, (NARA) listed below.)

In their reply to my query, the NPRC wrote that Julius had been born on 09
April 1920 in New York; he was a corporal who had served >from 09 Feb 1943
until 20 April 1944 when he had been "killed in action or buried at sea".
Further, they said that his name appears on Tablets of the Missing at the
American Cemetery at Carthage, Tunisia; that he had been a member of the
32nd Photo Squadron, 5th Rec Group. He had been awarded the Purple Heart,
Service Lapel Button WWII, and WWII Victory Medal, posthumously.
