Killed In Action
Private First Class Leo A. Wisneski of 17 New street, was killed in action in Italy on November 27, according to a telegram received by his father, Adolph G. Wisneski, from the War Department on Monday afternoon.
The telegram read: "The Secretary of War desires me to express his deep regret that your son, Private First Class Leo A. Wisneski, was killed in action in defense of his country on November 27, in Italy. Letter follows."
Private Wisneski enlisted in the U.S. Army in February, 1941, and was stationed at Pine Camp until last June when he was sent overseas. He served through the Tunisian campaign and other battles in North Africa.
Mr. Wisneski said last night that the last he heard from his son was on November 22, five days before he was killed in action.
Private Wisneski was a graduate of St. Peter's parochial school and was a graduate of the Kingston High School. While at high school he was a member of the football and golf teams. After graduating from high school and prior to entering the army he was employed by F.B. Matthews & Co., Inc., of Railroad avenue.
A brother, Robert, is now a student at the high school and another brother, Irving, is a student at St. Peter's school. He is also survived by a sister, Mrs. Leslie Van Vlierden of 17 New street.
