Monroe Stiner was born in November 21, 1921 in Sharps Chapel, Union County, Tennessee. He joined the Army at the age of 21.
Died October 21, 2013. He resided in Canton, OH and died peacefully in my mother’s home in North Canton, OH. During his service to our nation in WWII, he courageously fought in the Battle of the Bulge for which he received the European African Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with three bronze stars. He was later honorably discharged from the U.S. Army. This is the extent of my knowledge at this time. I would love to submit a photo and will work on finding one of him in uniform.
Most called him Moe, but I called him Popo. He was my hero! I had no idea my online search for him would result in finding this website. Thank you for all that you do to honor veterans – and heroes – like my Popo.
