Grave marker of Frank J. Pesce in Saint Patrick's
Cemetery, Somerset (Bristol County), Massachusetts.
Although this stone indicates that Frank earned a
single Purple Heart, he appears twice in the General Orders of the
508th PIR for an award of that medal. Those documents state
that he was wounded in action on 7 July 1944 in France and again on
19 September 1844 in Holland. He was a member of the
Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion.
