"All Hell Can't Stop Us"
Pfc. Roger W. Taylor was killed in action on January 6, 1945 near the town of Lutrebois, Belgium. He is buried in Luxembourg American Cemetery. His photograph is from Virginia Israel Bandy, who was Roger Taylor's fiancee from 1944 until his death.
Pfc Taylor's home town was Beloit, Ohio, a small town located between Alliance to it's west, and Salem to it's east. Towards the north end, and leaving the town, there is a small monument with a bronze plaque on it listing the five men from the town who were killed in World Ward II, Roger's name among them.
Farm where Roger Taylor grew up. Photo taken in 2017. The modern steel buildings were not there in 1944. The farm has since been subdivided and was much larger when Roger Taylor lived there.
Thanks to Virginia Israel Bandy and Pete Donatucci for these photographs.
