Unit: Company ?, ? Battalion, 334th Infantry Regiment, 84th Infantry Division
Date KIA: December 6, 1944

I am honored to help. I have not been able to locate his serial number but there are a couple of places you will want to check. The National Archives is the first place to check. Only family members can request information. If that is unsuccessful I would try Ancestry.com. There is a book about your Great Uncle's unit that has a list of all soldiers that lost their lives during World War 2 and it may have the information you seek. I don't have this book in my collection but Amazon.com does have it. I would also check with your local library and see if they can order the book for you. I have attached a link to the book Fortune Favored the Brave: A History of the 334th Infantry 84th Division that might help.
I wish I had more; I thank you for your service.
