There is 'No Known Grave' for LTC Leon Robert Vance, Jr. On June 5, 1944, he led a Heavy Bombardment Group in an attack against defended enemy coastal positions in the vicinity of Wimereaux, France near Pas-de-Calais to support the anticipated D-Day landings. #DDay75 #MemorialDay
Vance's acts of heroism and self-sacrifice ensuring a successful mission and saving his crew-mates earned him a Medal of Honor. Tragically, he died on his way home. His name is listed on the Tablets of the Missing, Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leon_Vance
