Lieutenant Noah Webster Collett Jr. of Salisbury, North Carolina, was with Company H, 319th Infantry and was KIA on 11 October 1944.  He was buried in Andilly Cemetery in France (near Nancy) and was repatriated in 1947.  From the following entry in the 702nd Tank Battalion Intelligence Journal, it is believed that Lt.
