Grave markers for Walter Lipinski and spouse in Arlington Cemetery, Brookville (Montgomery county), Ohio.

Walter enlisted in the Army at Ft Thomas, Newport, KY on 27 October 1942 and was assigned to Hq 2nd, 508 PIR.

Pvt Lipinski was declared a qualified parachutist on 5 March 1943.  His name essentially disappears from 508th records after that.

The National Jewish Welfare Board has a record stating that Walter was missing in action.  Also missing are a unit identifier and date he went MIA.  The National Archives does not list him as a POW, however, so he must have retuned to whatever unit he was then assigned to.
