Finding Every WWII Fallen in Every State

Updated: May 17, 2022

There is no accurate, official list of the World War II fallen.

The mission of Stories Behind the Stars is to create an accurate, complete list of these fallen and make sure that each one of them has a story that can be read at their gravesites or memorials, anywhere in the world.

The best way to create this list is state by state.

We now have a total of 21 volunteer state directors working on compiling these historic, first-ever lists in their home states. They can use your help to (1) find all the names that belong on their state list, and (2) write stories of all these WWII fallen.

You can email any of them to find out how you can help out.

Alabama - Bob Fuerst - Alaska - Dennis Dupras - Arizona - Jack W. Chisum - Colorado - Michelle Rollins -

Florida - Madonna Jervis Wise - Georgia - Becky Fox - Idaho - Dane Bean -

Illinois - Pam Broviak - Indiana - Emily Ritter - Kentucky - Julie Eastridge - Louisiana - Tricia Castille - Michigan - New director needed Missouri - Lisa McCole -

New Jersey - Karen Kontrath -

New York- Jeanine Grady -

Oklahoma - Linda Simpson - Pennsylvania - Heather Ritts - Rhode Island - Allison Albert -

Utah - Coby Crump -

Washington - Kimberly Nichols -

West Virginia - Ashley Durig -
