More about Gordon Robert Stewart, World War II Casualty

Here is an excerpt from the Tuesday, March 23, 1943 Citizen of Auburn NY found on www.fultonhistory.com:

Eleven Auburn and Cayuga County men are members of the First Marine Division the entire personnel of which has been cited by President Roosevelt for bravery in the heavy battling of Guadalcanal and the Solomons.The eleven, who went forth to battle with the Fifth Company of the First Marine Division are: ....Gordon Stewart of Cortland, formerly of Auburn and Raymond Maassen of Aurora.
Of the eleven, Gordon Stewart and Raymond Maassen have made the supreme sacrifice while ...(4 others) have been wounded.

I have found some interesting articles on Raymond Maassen and will talk about him soon.
