60th Engineers Combat Battalion, Company C

Cpl Peter P Polosky

Corporal Peter P. Polosky was from Nanty-Glo, Pennsylvania.  He was 26 years old, married, with a 6 month old baby when he was drafted.  He worked in the coal mines in western Pennsylvania.  Knowledge of explosives and engineer viewpoints were a plus for the unit he was assigned to.  Three months after he was drafted, in early 1943, FDR put a halt on drafting miners as coal production for the war effort was flagging.  Corporal Polosky passed away in 1995.

Thanks to Jason Polosky, Cpl. Polosky's paternal grandson, for the picture and information about his grandfather.
