    • Killed in the the Battle of the Bulge in the forest of Ardennes; hit by a shell while taking a message to a commander (or on the way back from delivering the message). A companion later wrote a letter to Dale's mother describing how he was instantly killed by a shell that hit him in the chest. He'd only been there for a few weeks at most, and it was cold and miserable.
