Bernard Paul Schindler

Private First Class Bernard Schindler succumbed to injuries sustained the previous day when his military police motorcycle overturned on Reilly Road near Smoke Bomb Hill at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

He was rushed to the base hospital where he succumbed to his injuries early the next morning. It is believed that Private Schindler lost control of his motorcycle on wet pavement due to rain showers the previous couple of days.

Private First Class Schindler's body was shipped to his hometown of Harper, Kansas for burial at the Crystal Springs Mennonite Cemetery.
