Grave marker for Curtis T. Ramzy in the Carthage Memorial Gardens (Leake county), Mississippi.

A 1940 graduate of the Mississippi State University School of Agriculture, Curtis entered service as a 2nd Lieutenant on 31 October 1941.  His early service record is unknown.  He first appears in 508th records as a 1st Lt.

1st Lt Ramzy served as the Assistant Communications Officer in Hq & Hq Company before being transferred to HQ 1st on 24 July 1944 where he took on the role of an Assistant Platoon Leader.

On 9 January 1945 he was evacuated to a field hospital with a Non-Battle injury, presumably frostbite.  If that was the case, it must have been mild as he was able to rejoin the company just three days later.

On 14 February 1945 Lt Ramzy was transferred to Co9mpany A where he remained until he transferred to the 1091st Airborne Division on 28 May 1945.

Lt Ramzy's military decorations include the Bronze Service Arrowhead for the Holland campaign and Airborne operations.
