Per the 84th Infantry Division roster, T/5 Blaine E. Ruffner of Morris, Texas was a member of the Medical Detachment, 335th Infantry. He served during the Rhineland and Ardennes (Battle of the Bulge) campaigns and was awarded a Purple Heart Medal for wounds in action. The roster does not indicate service during the division's Central Europe campaign, which means that he did not return to duty with the 84th during the remainder of the war in Europe. There is no further information.
Thank you for your inquiry.
