WWII Veteran Visits Brother's Grave at Luxembourg American Cemetery

During World War II it was common for a family to have multiple sons serving in the war, and the Green family of New York was no exception. Pfc. Leo Green, who served in the 347th Infantry Regiment, 87th Infantry Division, lost his life on January 6, 1945 during the Battle of the Bulge. His brother, Jack, survived the war, despite being injured by a landmine and spending more than two years in a hospital recovering from his injuries.

More than 72 years after Leo’s death, Jack returned to Luxembourg American Cemetery for the second time to honor his brother. During this visit he shared details about Leo, including that he had been a cartoonist who had items published in Stars and Stripes during the war.
