Belgium, WW2

1st Lieutenant Otis E. Finnel was grievously wounded in action on January 28, 1945, during a battalion command recon patrol in Belgium. While on this patrol, the jeep he was riding in struck a land mine, killing the driver, CPL Clarence V. Sanders. The B Battery Commander, CPT Lorton S. "Doc" Livingston, despite being severely injured himself, made every effort to save him, but 1LT Finnel died several days later. He was from Pueblo, Colorado. "Doc" Livingston eventually recovered from his wounds.

In all, the 29th Field Artillery had 50 combat casualty losses during World War II.

Every casualty is missed by their family, friends, and comrades!
