|Grave marker for Cornelius C. Connaghan
in Section 16, Block 8, Lot A, Space 7 of the South Lawn Memorial
Cemetery, Tucson (Pima county), Arizona.
Although born in Illinois, his home state is listed as Iowa because
that is where he first enlisted at Camp Dodge.
Pvt Connaghan was listed as missing on 6 June 1944
but his status was later changed to POW. He was ultimately
liberated from Stalag 4D on 24 May 1945.
His grave marker inscription states that he
received the Bronze Star Medal with 1 OLC, the awards were perhaps
due to having a WWII CIB and then while he served in Korea.
