One thought on “Eugene P. Madole

  1. Comment from Andrea Preppernau

    Eugene Proctor Madole was my Grandfather’s nephew (i.e. my mother’s cousin). Eugene died three years before my mother was even born, so she was never able to meet him. 2012 is the 70th anniversary of his death and our family has not forgotten and will never forget the sacrifice he made for our country and our freedom.
