Confirmed Mission: SSG Leroy C. Cloud, 24, WWII US Army KIA, Taylor, TX - 06 April 2024


Saturday portion remains as originally posted. Semper Gumby

The family SSG Leroy C. Cloud has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to participate in his interment services. SSG Cloud went MIA following a battle with German forces at Saint-Germain-d’Elle, France, on July 26, 1944. In August 1944 the War Department declared him KIA. Through the efforts of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) and American Graves Registration Command, SSG Cloud’s remains were identified and a Certificate of Death issued on 29 August 2023.
Additional information can be found here: https://dpaa-mil.sites.crmforce.mil/dpaaProfile...

His obituary includes more detail of the battle which took his life and the efforts which led to his positive identification. https://www.taylorprovidencefuneralhome.com/obituary/leroy-cloud?fbclid=IwAR3K46VJcnwcghnVf03MKyFYOCwh7Jyom0f8poczDDRyv_KozOI5H6-Ui3A_aem_AcWBb9BZyG9c6Uqsw-pqA3AqCjta4ApV8sYBD7VtAvMg1uYONJVhNi37LkwucgMxBkiZor3DZSncgsA3qJKFPfh1
