He died on December 1, 1944, of wounds received in action on November 30, 1944, while we were engaged in a particularly hazardous undertaking in Western Germany. During the course of our participation in executing a hazardous mission, heavy enemy fire was encountered and the successful execution of our mission was endangered. Your son, Private First Class Hall, by his heroic actions on this occasion contributed materially to the successful execution of our mission, and in so doing was seriously wounded. He was buried with a service of his church in our Army Cemetery in Holland.
