Richard J. Wood PFC US 1st Army was killed on his 21st birthday on the 2nd day of the Battle of the Bulge in the Ardennes Forest in Belgium. My uncle Richard was an Olympic athlete who was exempt from the draft but after seeing his friends come home in body bags volunteered to fight for our nation and our freedom. May God bless and reward his soul with an eternity in heaven and may God continue to bless the USA!
