PRIVATE JULIUS STRIEWSKI, was the son of Charles & Emma Striewski of New Brooklyn Road in Winslow Township NJ. A 1942 graduate of Lower Camden County Regional High School, he had worked at Armstrong Cork in Camden NJ prior to his entry into the Army in June of 1943. Julius Striewski  went overseas in December of the 1943. He was assigned to the 301st Infantry Regiment, 94th Infantry Division

Three other Striewski brothers were in the service by May of 1944, Robert with the Army Air Force, and Herman and Frederick with the Army. 

The 94th Infantry Division Landed at Utah Beach on D-Day + 94. From there the moved into Brittany to contain the Germans in the the Lorient and St Nazaire Pockets. They kept nearly 30,000 troops penned up at those two cities and later stretched clear across France guarding the Allied Army's rear from attack. Three months later the Battle of the Bulge started and the 94th was called into action. Sent to General Patton's Third Army in the Saar- Moselle Triangle region they assaulted and cracked the vaunted "Siegfried Switch Line" which had kept the Third Army at bay since September.  After destroying the Switch the division vaulted across the Saar River and then Raced to the Rhine to capture a bridge across. Private Stirewski was killed while his unit was effecting a crossing and establishing a bridgehead across the Saar River, on February 22, 1945, at Serrig, Germany.
