Re: Joseph William Donovan
The 84th Division roster lists Captain Joseph W. Donovan of Putnam, Connecticut in the officers section of the 335th Infantry. The listing notes that he was a company commander (unit not indicated), that he served in all three of the Division's campaigns, and was awarded a Bronze Star Medal.
The division history, "The 84th Infantry Division in the Battle of Germany" by Lt. Theodore Draper (Viking Press. NY: 1946) lists him as Company Commander, Regimental Headquarters Company, 335th Infantry. There is no further information.
