Brief History of Joseph H. Frank, Jr. by Evamarie Augustine, Niece


Joseph Frank was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. July 3, 1921, to Margaret Dausner and Joseph Frank. He was the eldest of six children. His nickname was "Lefty", as he was partially blind in one eye. Despite this disability, he enlisted in the Army and was in the Quartermaster Survey Company. In the summer of 1944, his family began receiving wires that he was missing in action, and finally received word that he had died in service to his country. No other information was made available to them and the
date of death was given as April 28. He received a purple heart for his service.
