Looking for any information on Pfc. Bernard Bossert of the 197th FA, KIA on Apr. 2nd, 1945.  His grave has been adopted by Lucien Gerardu of Arensgenhout, The Netherlands.  Lucien's family has honored the grave site and memory of Pfc. Bossert for 3 generations and is making sure that continues on for generations to come.  It started with his grandmother who died 35 years ago.  As you can see by the photos below, the legacy is in good hands.  Contact has been make with Mr. Bossert's son, Bernard Jr. and a photo of Pfc. Bossert should be forthcoming.  The American 30th family truly appreciates the adoption of 30th veteran graves.  It means so very much!!!
