PFC Conrad Cecil Mason was born December 3, 1912. He was raised in the area
of Cameron, West Virginia.
PFC Mason was a member of the 29th Field Artillery Battalion, killed in action
during the June 6, 1944 Invasion of Normandy, when his LCT hit a mine and sank
during the landing at Utah Beach. He was among those 50 men killed, mostly from
B Battery, 29th Field Artillery, many of whom were never recovered.
He was married, and left behind a loving son and daughter who never truly knew
him, but loved and honored him throughout their lives.
