Osmand P. REAGAN

Pfc,  "H" Company 503rd PRCT

K.I.A., Artillery Point,  Corregidor

Sunday, 25 Feb 1945

 

Osmand Reagan died on February 25, 1945. We were cleaning out or sealing caves near Artillery Point. As we moved along the beach we came to an area where the cliff edge was very close to the water. Osmond stepped around the cliff’s edge near the water line. He was shot through the head as he rounded the projection. We don’t know for sure where the shot originated.

Commanding

Poor communications between commands resulted in a "G" Company trooper to the east of Infantry Point unintentionally killing an "H" Company trooper as the latter rounded a projecting precipice of Infantry Point at water's edge. During the course of the battles for Corregidor there were several isolated and regrettable instances in which comrades inadvertently slew their own comrades.
