WORLD WAR II, THE GREATEST GENERATION (1941 - 1945)
PERRY COUNTY, KENTUCKY SOLDIERS, SAILORS, AIRMEN, MARINES

INTRODUCTION ~ MEN LOST ~  SURVIVORS ~ UNITED STATES MILITARY MEDALS

REMEMBER AND NAME, A











    



     In his 1998 book published by Random House, THE GREATEST GENERATION, Tom Brokaw “coined the phrase” for all, who served on the home front and overseas in World War II.

      During World War II Perry County military men LOST included:  a sailor during the attack on Pearl Harbor on the first day of the war; a marine at Wake Island on the second day of war in the Pacific; a sailor on the sinking of USS JACOB JONES by a German U-Boat off the coast of Delaware in the Atlantic Ocean in the third month of war; a soldier on D-Day in the first assault wave on Omaha Beach at Normandy; a sailor in a Kamikaze Attack at Okinawa; an army airman in a B-24 H Liberator; a soldier in the “Devil’s Brigade,” which was an American-Canadian Commando Unit, First Special Service Force; a sailor in the sinking of the submarine, USS TRITON; an airman in a Glider Infantry Regiment, who died in the Kiekberg Forest; a sailor on the USS ATLANTA at Guadalcanal; a Prisoner of War soldier on a Japanese Hell Ship; an Army Ranger in the Battle of Anzio, Italy; a marine at Iwo Jima, who posthumously became a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient; a Prisoner of War soldier in the Japanese Palawan Massacre; a sailor in the sinking of the SS DAN BEARD; a Missing-In Action marine at Guadalcanal; a soldier in North Africa; an army airman on troop transport ship, H. M. T. RHONA, when the ship was sunk in the Mediterranean Sea by a German guided missile, which was kept secret for decades.    

     Numerous souls were non-recoverable.   Many were buried on foreign soil.  Others were repatriated, returned home to family and laid to rest in Englewood or Riverside or family cemeteries throughout Perry County and beyond.  The harsh consequences of the Loss of The Fallen were:  communities torn asunder, children left without a complete family circle to sustain them and families living with an anguish that never ceased.

     Perry County military SURVIVORS included:  a soldier, who was in the First Wave at Omaha Beach on D-Day, cut a gap in a wire obstruction, led his section through a mine field, moved onward through an assault on an enemy machine gun position and became a recipient of a Silver Star Medal and the Distinguished Service Cross; a sixteen-year-old paratrooper, who jumped into Normandy on D-Day, missed the drop zone and returned through enemy territory to the American lines; a sailor, who was on board as the SS DAN BEARD sank beneath the sea; a sailor on the USS COOPER, when she was hit by a torpedo, exploded, broke in half and sank within a minute in the Battle of Ormoc Bay; a sailor on the USS YORKTOWN, who was in the Battle of the Coral Sea and endured the destruction of his ship in the Battle of Midway; a marine from Mason’s Creek, who became an Atomic Veteran; four brothers, whose parents died while they were in service, resulting in four sisters being placed in the Kentucky Baptist Children’s Home in Glendale in Hardin County; a young woman from the middle fork of Mason’s Creek, who became a Navy Yeoman in the WAVES and a waitress employed at the Judy and Grant Combs Cafe in Vicco, who became a Sergeant in the Women’s Army Air Corps. 

     Three-quarters of a century have passed since the Day of Infamy.  The lives and deeds of many, who answered the Call to Arms, have vanished from view.  Search out the stories and the photographs of our Warriors.  Become familiar with their names, their families, their kinships, their communities, their values, their sacrifices and their place in history.  Bestow honor on the Greatest Generation, who connected us to our past, gave us our present and offered us a vision of hope for sustaining our Constitution, our Liberty, our Flag and our United States of America for future generations. ~~ Waukesha Lowe Sammons.
