Grave marker for James A. Nevue in Plot 5, Site 1145,
Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery, San Antonio (Bexar county),
James registered for the draft in Granite falls, MN
on 13 November 1945 stating his date of birth as 10 November 1927,
i.e., he was 18 years of age.
However, as noted on his grave marker, his actual
date of birth was 8 May 1930. That implies he was just 16 when
he was inducted into the Army on 26 February 1944.
He was discharged on 26 January 1949.
His son stated vi email, ""My father was a member of
the 508th PIR. He enlisted in 1945 and was stationed amongst other
places, in Germany." Unfortunately, our records do not cover
the period when he would have joined the 508th in Frankfurt.
