Service Personnel Not Recovered Following WWII

The list of unrecovered Service Personnel from WWII was compiled using two historical sources:

  • Rosters of Military Personnel Whose Remains Were Not Recovered, 1951-54;
    American Graves Registration Service, 1954, Record Group 92, National Archives and Records Administration, College Park, MD.
  • The World War II Rosters of the Dead (All Services):
    Department of the Army
    Microfiche Reference No. 601-07; 1 May 1983; Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command.

Entries on this website were created by corroborating names and service numbers appearing in both sources.  In cases where discrepancies appeared in the spelling of a name or other detail, researchers employed a third source relevant to the service person's branch of service to resolve the discrepancy.

The date of last update is shown at the the bottom of each page and reflects ongoing research results as well as recent identification and repatriation of remains.
