Homer Patterson

Pfc., "F" Co., 503d PRCT

K.I.A., Rock Point Trail,  Corregidor

21 February 1945

 

 Pfc Homer Patterson was wounded as his patrol walked along Rock Point Trail on the north side of Grubbs Ravine. He was a quiet soldier who never complained. Well-liked, he was missed by men and officers. He died before he could reach the battalion aid station. Richard Lampman, one of the party running a mile in the hot sunshine carrying him, said that was the most saddening experience he went through during the entire war. No one of the patrol argued with him.
