Draft Board record for Michael C. Mihovch
Michael enlisted in the Army at Pittsburgh, PA on 24
Pvt Mihovch was assigned to Company SD, 508th PIR.
He participated in the jump into Normandy and was wounded in action on
17 June 1944..
Although his name does not appear as MIA in the Morning Reports, he was
included on a listing released by the War Department. This
headline appeared in the Pittsburg Press on 20 September 1944 with an
extract of the 125 Alleghany county men from that list. This
two-line excerpt reported Michael.
But that news was very out of date as Pvt Mihovch was listed as
hospitalized in Company D Morning report of 29 June. One week
after this news report, he was transferred from Company D to the
Detachment of Patients at an unknown hospital signifying that he was not
expected to return to the regiment.
He was discharged from the Army on 216 December 1945.
