Henry Mccroskey “Buck” Huff
Born 29 October 1915, Tennessee
Died 8 February 1945, Luxembourg
Sgt Henry M. (Buck) Huff, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ebb Huff of Loudon, was killed in action in Luxembourg on February 8, according to a wire received by his family Wednesday.
Sgt Huff had seen a lot of action, and on December 3, had been wounded while fighting with the Third Army in Germany. He had been hospitalized and fully recovered from the wounds and returned to duty. He wrote recently about being back at the front, but the letter was not dated.
Sgt Huff was one of the bravest men in his outfit, leading his platoon on attacks on the enemy. He is exceptionally well liked in Loudon, and his making the supreme sacrifice is the subject of both great pride and great sorrow.
Sgt. Huff has another brother, Lt William E. Huff, who has seen service in the European theatre of operations. One brother, Pvt Bob Huff, was killed in a training accident in Texas, Oct. 15, 1943.
Buried at Steekee Cemetery, Loudon, Loudon County, Tennessee
