Editors Note: This year, we will be making a special effort to remember each and every known member of the 192nd Tank Battalion. As part of that remembrance, we will list each day the members who were killed or died on that date, along with links for additional information as available. We look forward to your comments.
Pvt. L.T. Nix Jr.
On this date in 1942, Pvt. Lewis Taylor (“LT”) Nix Jr (Co. D) was killed by friendly fire while on patrol. He was shot by the machine gun on a tank when a tank crewman slipped and grabbed the machine gun for support. He is buried in the Manila American Cemetery in the Philippines.
