Powless, Randall Arthur

Pfc. Randall Arthur Powless, eldest son of Mr. Lincoln Powless, R. R, 6, Hagersville, one of Canada's allies as a Six Nations Indian, responded to her need for help in the Second Great War before he was old enough to legally enter the armed forces. He enlisted in the R.C.A.F., and was discharged when it was learned he was too young. Then, at the age of 18, he joined the United States Army and on February 15, 1944, began his training as a paratrooper. The period of instruction and his active combat duty was less than a year and on January 3, 1945, be lost his life in Belgium. Popular among his friends, both young and old, Randall's brave young spirit is vividly remembered and his loss to his community keenly felt.
