From a contemporary press report:

Edgar James Masten, 76, a retired Army Master Sergeant and decorated World War II veteran who also was head of engineer maintenance at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, died February 25, 2000, at his home in Elkridge, Maryland, after a heart attack.

He began his military service with the 509th Parachute Infantry Regiment in World War II.

He saw combat in North Africa, Italy and Germany, and was awarded the Silver Star, the Bronze Star and four Purple Hearts.

Sergeant Masten, who had assignments with the occupation forces in Germany and later with the Army Missile Command, retired from active military duty in 1965 after 20 years of service.

He then spent about 11 years at Walter Reed before retiring in 1983.

A former Silver Spring and Ellicott City resident, he lived in Elkridge for the past five months.

His wife, Gene Masten, died in 1995. Survivors include three children, Stephany Faulkner of Virginia Beach, Michael Masten of Bowie and Patti Wecker of Elkridge; and 10 grandchildren.
