  • Leonard Hanson - killed in the Argonne Forest on Oct 14, 1918...28 days shy of the armistice and 37 days shy of his 18th birthday.
  • Edwin Stark - Onboard the U.S.S. Cyclops, which was lost at sea. No wreckage was ever found, no wireless message was ever received and no reports of enemy subs in the area. One explanation for the disappearance is that a freak storm caught the ship unprepared and split it apart.
  • James Leith - An early draftee after Pearl Harbor. He was KIA on Apr 26, 1943 in Tunisia and was buried there
  • Maurice Paeth - One of eight crewmen killed when a B-25 Bomber crashed near Rowe, NM on May 15, 1945. The plane was on a routine training flight.

 The memorial is located in Wilton, Wisconsin.
