I would like to add to my posting of 14 years ago.
Mac Day was my great grandfather. His son Alexander D. Day( my grandfather) also killed in line of duty in West Virginia. I am 73 now . Born and raised in Wyoming County(Pineville) Wv. I have the book “The Crusader”. They are buried on Belcher Mountain(McDowell County) Wv. I’ve been there many times. My Dad , Robert A. Day is 96 and still living in Wv and doing well. Dad was a paratrooper in WW ll. He I’m sure could answer so many of your questions about these two heroes.
