Found the name of Joseph M. Mosca listed in the Social Security Death Index database (SSDI). City/State/Zip Code listed in SSDI matches the Address listed in 39th BG Assoc Records.

10 June 2007:
Lori Harris, has identified her father (Sgt Roy W. Broome) and Sgt Dale E. Wohlgamuth in the above photo.

Historian's Note: On a listing of "Cemeteries of Wayne County" - Burbank Cemetery the following entry was found:
"Dale E. Wohlgamuth 1922-1949 WWII Burbank Cemetery". The year "1922" fits with the birth year of a WWII veteran. According to the Sept 1945 62nd EM Roster - Dale E. Wohlgamuth's address of record was Burbank, OH. This could be our veteran.
