Honor Mission
Eugene E. Lochowicz, KIA
USA – WWII
Milwaukee, Wisconsin – 11-08-19, 11-16-19

ABOUT THE MISSION:
In early 1945, Pfc. Eugene E. Lochowicz was a member of Company A, 28th Infantry Regiment, 8th Infantry Division. On Feb. 23, 1945, he went missing while his unit crossed the Roer River under fire, near Lendersdorf, Germany. Members of his unit later concluded that he had been lost when one of the boats capsized. All efforts to find him were unsuccessful. In February 1949, AGRC investigators were in the area where Lochowicz was lost, but were unsuccessful in finding his remains. In 2017, in response to inquiries from Lochowicz’s family regarding unknown remains recovered around Lendersdorf, a DPAA historian reviewed documents of X-285 Margraten, which had been pulled from the river near where Lochowicz went missing. The remains, which could not be identified when they were found in 1945, had subsequently been buried at the United States Military Cemetery at Margraten, Netherlands. Based upon the location and circumstances of recovery, the DPAA historian concluded that Lochowicz was a likely candidate for association. Pfc. Eugene E. Lochowicz is being brought home to his family.
