Vincent was 27 years old and had been overseas for two years.
Battle plans as of May 1944 listed Dog Company, 116th Infantry to be in the fifth landing wave at Omaha beach on D-Day,

A Sgt Slaughter of D Company recalled LT Labowicz as a damn fine officer. He thinks that Vincent made it ashore but was killed by machine gun fire on the beach. Sgt Slaughter stated that the long ride in from the troop ships had most everybody seasick and throwing up. He lay in the water for more than thirty minutes before attempting to run across the beach to the sea wall. He accidentally discharged his weapon, w'hich then became jammed. When he removed his jacket to clean his weapons, he was shocked to see that his jacket was in shreds, yet he was not wounded. He was killed in action in Normandy, France.

The portrait is on display in the Maynard Veterans' Wall of Honor in the Soup Campbell Room, Lower Level of Maynard Town Hall.
