Wibben, Nicholas (Missing in Action - 1943)

Staff Sgt. Nicholas Wibben, 26, town of Holton, who enlisted in the U.S. army December 20, 1939, in Wausau, and who was serving with the American paratroopers overseas, has been missing in action since December 7th, according to word received from the war department by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Wibben, town of Holton.

His parents believe he was in the European area, possibly in Italy, but were not certain. His last letter to his parents was received December 16th and had been written November 15th. He reported that he was healthy, well-fed and was anxious to receive news from home.

From time to time I check on Nick.

By the time his parents received his letter, he had been killed.

I have much more information on him if you are interested.

He is buried in the American Cemetery outside Rome. My daughter and her husband visited Rome and went to the cemetery and laid flowers on his grave. She was told that every Memorial Day, local children put flowers on the graves.

Are you related to Nick?
