You can now find the stories of ALL the World War II fallen buried in Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery.
Perhaps the best known section of Arlington National Cemetery in recent years is Section 60. This has been one of most active areas for burials. There are 612 WWII fallen buried or memorialized in Section 60. People can now read a story about each of them via the Find A Grave and/or Together We Serve smartphone apps. You can see a video of how it works with Army 1st Lieutenant Warren R. Mohrfeld here.
This is the first time in the history of Arlington National Cemetery that the general public has everything needed to identify details about all of the WWII fallen in this part of the cemetery. This was made possible by countless hours of volunteer researchers and writers.
We started out with a spreadsheet of 567 names we got from Arlington National Cemetery and Find A Grave. An additional 45 names were found. A team of 36 research volunteers scanned the internet to find additional details so we now have an easy-to-access record that includes service number, unit or ship, and photo (where available).
Next, a team of 34 volunteer writers wrote stories of these 612 WWII fallen. You can find these and all the other ANC stories on Fold3 here.
You can see our current list of Arlington volunteer writers and database researchers here.
The database of these records will be combined with those of the other sections of ANC. This will be the most accurate list of WWII fallen buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
