 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
In November, 1944, Dickson was a member of Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion, 110th Infantry Regiment, 28th Infantry Division. He was tasked with facilitating communication among various battle elements by laying telephone wire between headquarters and outposts in the Hürtgen Forest in Germany. Dickson was allegedly killed in the early morning hours of Nov. 13, 1944, when he and other Soldiers moved to the front lines to reestablish broken telephone lines. According to witnesses, one man was killed and three were wounded. However, surviving members could not confirm Dickson's death, nor provide the exact location to where he was killed. He was subsequently listed as missing in action. In Nov. 14, 1945, his status was amended to killed in action. He was identified and accounted for on Sep. 24, 2018 by Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA).
