CPL Clarence Vincent Sanders
KIA - January 28, 1945
Belgium, WW2

CPL Clarence V. Sanders was killed in action on January 28, 1945, during a battalion command recon patrol in Belgium. While on this patrol, the jeep he was driving struck a land mine, killing him and, grievously wounding 2LT Otis Finnel. The B Battery Commander, CPT Lorton S. "Doc" Livingston, despite being severely injured himself, made every effort to save him, but 2LT Finnel died several days later. "Doc" Livingston eventually recovered from his wounds.

CPL Sanders' nickname was "Duke", and he was from Detroit, Michigan.

In all, the 29th Field Artillery had 50 men killed in action during World War II.

Every casualty is missed by their family, friends, and comrades!

Ms. Carolyn Brown, with the help of Irving Smolens, provided the photograph above, which is over 50 years old, very dark, and very faded. You may CLICK on it see the original version. CPL Sanders is the man on the left. Use your BROWSER BACK BUTTON to return. This photo was modified by Sandy Easton so it would be more appropriate on this memorium page. The clarity is poor, and we cannot help this.
