Paul Jennins Frazier, 1922-1945

While this post is a few days late, I felt it only right to pay tribute to our World War II veterans in honor of the 67th anniversary of D-Day.

Paul Jennins Frazier was married to Pattie Hooker (my first cousin 1x removed). He and Pattie were high school sweethearts and married in 1939. The couple had three children; two of them were born by the time Paul was shipped overseas to serve as a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps during World War II. He was killed in action 28 February 1945 in the Battle of Iwo Jima.

The American Battle Monuments Commission lists Paul Jennins Frazier as Missing in Action or Buried at Sea. His name can be found on the Tablets of the Missing at Honolulu Memorial in Honolulu, Hawaii. He was awarded the Purple Heart for his dedicated service to his country.
