Grave marker for Robert J. Furtaw in the
Chapel Gardens Cemetery, Elwell (Gratiot county), Michigan.
Robert enlisted in the Army on 21 April
Pvt Furtaw was seriously injured in action
as of 6 June 1944 and evacuated to a field hospital. On 27 September
1944 he was transferred to the hospital's Detachment of Patients and did not
return to the regiment.
His grave marker indicates that he may
have been wounded twice, perhaps he was transferred to another unit after
his hospitalization. He was discharged on 24 January 1946.
