Almost two thousand names are included in the World War II casualty list for Troy and vicinity. One measure of the Troy Area’s participation in the war effort was this steadily lengthening list of those killed in action, wounded, missing, and prisoners of war and interned. The casualty list, published in the Troy Record on Wednesday Morning, May 30, 1945, page 8, is compiled from news reports from the attack on Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941 to May 23, 1945. Until World War II ended with the surrender of Japan on September 2, 1945, there would be many more additional names added to this list.
