134th Infantry Regiment
"All Hell Can't Stop Us"
At the time of his death in battle, Sgt. Robert J. Field, known as "Cotton", was leading a Third Battalion Command Group. An .88 shell landed in the middle of the group as they moved up a hill outside of Bellange, France. It killed Sgt. Field immediately and wounded the other 4 men in the 5-man group.
These are photographs of Sgt. Robert J. Field's temporary grave site in France taken by his friend, S/Sgt Edmund J. Sedlak, who also served in Company M, 134th Infantry Regiment. He is now buried at Sanders Cemetery in Clay County, Indiana.
Thanks to Carol Sedlak-Reinhardt, daughter of S/Sgt Edmund J. Sedlak, for these pictures from her father's collection.
