Grave marker for Loren W. Carter in Plot J, Site 801, Camp Butler National Cemetery, Springfield (Sangamon countr), Illinois.

Loren enlisted at Peoria, IL on 7 April 1943 and on 28 August 1943 Pvt Carter was transferred from the Parachute School, Fort Benning, GA to Co G, 508th PIR.

He was promoted to Pfc on 18 July 1944, a nice surprise as he was on furlough following the return from Normandy at the timer.

On 1 February 1945 while in  Belgium  Pfc Carter was evacuated to a field hospital  classed as a non-battle Casualty,  He later was able to rejoin the company.
