PFC Jesse Roland Stancil attended Lewis School and Broughton in the '30s and enlisted in the Army on April 8, 1943. He landed in the Anzio Invasion and fought up the "boot" of Italy with Co. I, 157th Reg. of the 45th Division. Jesse Roland was killed in southern France on October 21, 1944 and is buried in Montlawn Cemetery in Raleigh. There were six Stancil boys and one girl who lived at 51 N. West Street in Raleigh, NC.
He even included two pictures of him. I was very impressed, not to mention touched by his efforts to communicate with alumni and let them in on the news of one another.
So don't do like I did and neglect to check with the high schools attended by your family members. You just might get a lovely surprise!
