NICK E. HANIAN

[courtesy of Katie Lou]

Grave markers for Nick E. Hanian and spouse in Glendale Cemetery, Des Moines (Polk county), Iowa.

Nick enlisted in the Army at Des Moines, IA on 1 January, 1941.

Pvt Hanian was transferred to Hq Hq 508th PIR from Hq Field Force Replacement Depot #8 on 31 March 1944.

He was promoted to Pfc on 19 February 1945.

His military decorations include the Bronze Star Arrowhead device awarded for participation in Normandy assault.  This was apparently earned while in a previous unit but awarded after a records review by the 508th.
