I have an uncle, Forrest Mitchell Cook, who died on Anzio Beach in Italy on March 1, 1944 ( WW II). His date of birth was 12/07/1921, he was in the Army. His family home was on Laurel Road, near Clinton, TN in Anderson County. Parents were Posey and Martha Cook, he was not married. He was my mother’s brother and I have heard lots of stories about his courage and abilities in the Army.
