SGT. A. ADAMCIK KILLED IN ACTION FRANCE AUGUST 2

Word was received August 26 by Mrs. Mathilda Macha, from the War Department, advising her that her son, Staff Sergeant Allen Adamcik, 24, was killed in action in France, Aug. 2.

Young Adamcik volunteered in the army in January, 1941. He started his basic training in Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio and later was transferred to Camp McCoy in Wisconsin. In August, 1943, he spent his last furlough here in the county with friends and relatives. September 7, 1943, he was sent across to Ireland. From there he was sent to England to await the invasion day in which he participated.

Mrs. Macha had previously received word that her son had been slightly wounded June 18, in France. Following his injury he spent several days in a hospital. Recuperating he returned to battle where he fought and gave his life for his country.

Born and raised in Matagorda County, Allen Adamcik spent his young life, prior to his enlistment, on his mother’s farm, southwest of Midfield. A pleasant personality and friendly spirit gained for him scores of friends, and these together with the rest of the people of the county, mourn the loss of this young man who gave his life that others may better enjoy life.

Allen Adamcik was the first war casualty from the Midfield section.

Besides his mother he is survived by one brother, Alvin and one sister, Alma, both at home with Mrs. Adamcik.
