Remarks According to the memoirs of Frank Monan, Co. A 331st, Pvt. Edmund L Geogan was a member of Company A. Since the date of death, rank and regiment are the same and since there is no Edmund L Geogan listed as a casualty in the 331st it is safe to assume that Frank Monan made a typo.

The 331st Casualty Report (page 3, #87) for 1944 lists Pvt. Grogan as member of A Co.

The morning reports confirm this. Private Grogan was a member of A Company. The morning report for July 10, 1944 on page 14 and 15 lists him joining the unit from the 48th Replacement Battalion on July 7, 1944. Page 52, for July 25, 1944 lists him as missing in action on July 20, 1944. The morning report for November 27, 1944 on page 32 changes his status from MIA to KIA on July 20, 1944.
