William served with the 250th Field Artillery Battalion. He lightheartedly described his contribution during WWII as: “…I was the man who carried the maps…”
On D-Day, William Loncaric’s assignment was to land at Omaha Beach and to help get Corps Headquarters operational by D + 1. “Corp Forward” had to command Omaha and Utah Beach, coordinating the infantry, artillery, and Air Force. Loncaric also participated in the liberation of Dachau prison camp. He had never seen anything like it in his life.
We honor you, William Loncaric.
