Charles 'Happy' HOYT

S/sgt, 2d Platoon, 'F' Company, 503d PRCT 

KIA, Battery Wheeler, Corregidor

Friday 16 February 1945

 

S/Sgt Charles Hoyt was killed instantly in front of the married NCO Quarters. His nickname was “Happy,” because he was always happy. The 2nd platoon sergeant had been injured on the jump, and as the senior squad leader, Happy was acting as platoon sergeant. He would be sorely missed, and not forgotten, by his brothers in F Company.
