Military Monday & NMAM: Paul Ruczhak

May has been designated by Congress as National Military Appreciation Month. As such, Genealogical Gems is featuring a veteran or current member of the military each day. Today, I selected my Uncle Paul Ruczhak.

Paul is my paternal grandfather's brother. Born on 18 September 1922, Paul Hruszczak is the son of Panko and Bessie Matys Hruszczak.

On 1 December 1942, Paul enlisted in the US Army in Philadelphia. He was single at the time, being only 20 years old. He was released on 3 November 1945.

After the War, Pvt. Ruczhak returned to Coatesville where he met and married Ocie Mae Bailey on 28 September 1958. Uncle Paul passed away 8 January 1995 in Coatesville.
