Corporal Lloyd Raymond Cabe was born in Norton, Virginia. He was a medic with the Medical Company, 31st Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division. He was killed in action while tending his wounded comrades in South Korea.
My father Lloyd R Cabe II was 4 years old when his father got killed. My father said all he remembered about his father’s funeral was the gunfire. My grandmother always talked about how handsome he was.
