No bodies from his platoon were recovered. The body of Pfc. Quinlan was among the 27 from his platoon never found. Company F was quartered where the torpedo struck the ship. Of 175 soldiers assigned to Company f, only 19 survived. Stats from my copy of National archive official army Leopoldville casualty lists prepared on 12/29/1944 & 01/05/1945. Ms. Sorenson should contact me directly via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. If she has a photo of him I will post it on the appropriate In Memoriam page.
