Spare a minute
to think
of the young who didn't grow up,
and how young they looked when they died,
and how no one will ever remember them looking tired and middle-aged
or even be bored by tiresome recitals of the time of their youth.

- - - - Russell Baker "How to Observe Dec. 7" (NY Times, Dec. 1965)


These names are mostly from the June 30, 1947 list compiled by the Adjutant General. It is not known if other deaths have been identified since then, nor if the names on the Adjutant General's list are spelled correctly (other unit lists have been found to have had omissions and mis-spellings). See the white box just below for how you can let me know about any errors you find.

Abbreviations:
- MOS = Military Occupational Specialty
- USMC = United States Military Cemetery
- WOM = Wall of the Missing (called "Tablets of the Missing" at some USMCs)

I have checked all these names against the American Battle Monuments Commission's World War II Honor Roll. If you want to check a name on the Honor Roll, click here. You can also check names on the World War II Registry of the National World War II Memorial.

    So they will not be “Forgot”
    There is a word
    Which bears a sword
    It hurls its barbed syllables,-
    At once is mute again.
    But where it fell
    The saved will tell
    On patriotic day,
    Some epauletted brother
    Gave his breath away.
    Wherever runs the breathless sun,
    Wherever roams the day,
    There is its noiseless onset,
    There is its victory!
    Behold the keenest marksman!
    The most accomplished shot!
    Time’s sublimest target
    Is a soul “forgot”!
    ----- Emily Dickinson
