World War II soldier sought by historian

-A A +A

Galax historian John Nunn is helping a French citizen find out more about a local soldier who was killed while liberating the man's village during World War II.

Alban Bagy sent an e-mail to Nunn after Bagy found Nunn's Web site, ecommunitiesonline.com/galax, while searching for information.

Nunn shared the e-mail with The Gazette in an effort to help Bagy learn more about PFC Dan J. Weatherman, who was killed in action in 1944 while fighting to take back a village from German control.
