Clyde Franklin Cagle

May 24, 2019

I have not officially adopted the grave of Clyde F. Cagle. I have adopted the grave of his brother George Cagle, buried at the Henri-Chapelle American cemetery in Belgium. His family asked me to adopt the grave of Clyde too. I informed with the association in France, but their efforts to contact the adopters were unanswered. I will visit the grave of Clyde Cagle everytime I'm in Normandy.
