Deaths in Europe

Spare a minute |
of the young who didn't grow
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)
Leonard Johnson's name is from the June 30, 1947 list compiled by the Adjutant General. Since then Robert Hicks' name has been added to the web page. See the white box just below for how you can let me know about any errors you find or names that are missing.
I have not 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.

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
