Private Charles j Swingos
I am looking for any information MR SwingosCharles J. died October 15, 1944, and buried in the cemetery of Henri Chapelle, Belgium.
I belong to an association that works to safeguard the graves of soldiers killed during WW2. And am the "godfather" of the soldier Charles J. Swingo, number 35827796 listed on his grave.Born in 1923 in Cuyahoga County, enlisted at Fort Harrison in Indiana March 29, 1944, and killed October 15, 1944. Part of the Division9 of 60 infenterie regiment.
I would like to know more about him, and possibly correspond with her family if she is still alive, and if she accepts.
From my initial research, he died in the Hurtgen Forest in Germany.
Hope to receive good news, please access.
Hello - I am a second cousin to Charles Swingos. My mother and him were first cousins and were very close. She always speaks very highly of the kind of person he was. He was always willing to help others and very close to his family. My mother often tells me how she wished I would have had the opportunity to know him. I do want to thank you for being "godfather" to his grave site. It meant a great deal to my mother when I passed that information on to her. With warm regards and thanks, Elaine
