Queen Mary Manifest
shows Pfc Albert L, Dutzy on line 48

Albert L. Dutzy died on August 15, 1997 in Eaton Rapids, MI.  His final resting place has yet to be determined.

"Dutzy" as he was known to most, was a member of Hq 1st Company beginning on August 10, 1944 when he was transferred from the 11th Replacement Depot in England.  During that period the 508th was replenishing it's stock of men and materials as it recovered from losses in Normandy.

Dutzy made the jump into Holland for Operation Market-Garden on  September 17, 1944 and was awarded the Bronze Service Arrowhead device for that campaign.  He probably also participated in the Battle of The Bulge as well.

Following the war, Pfc. Albert Dutzy was a featured pitcher on the Hq 1st softball team.

As the rotation points system finally gave Albert his chance to return home, he was transferred to the 504th PIR and boarded the Queen Mary, which had been converted to a troop ship, at Southampton, England.  The ship departed on December 28, 1945, arriving in New York City on January 3, 1946.
