The Smiths lived at 419 Smith Street in Jacksonville. Three days before his 20th birthday, Smith enlisted in the U.S. Army to serve during World War II. He became a member of the combat infantry of the 63rd Infantry Division's 255th Infantry Regiment. Capt. Smith was Killed in Action (KIA) on January 3, 1945, in the Ardennes region, repelling German forces during Operation Nordwind, the last German offensive of the war. After his death, Capt.
