to perpetuate the memory and history of our dead

4.1 the Lost Bn Association

Follow this URL to learn more about the Association:

As of 2022, there are but three of the POWs remaining alive. All have reached the century mark having been born in FEB & MAR 1922. Two were Sailors from the HOUSTON, SEA2c Hanley and Sizemore. We also celebrate that Army CPL Rufus Choate also hit the century mark.


I have been informed that Robert HANLEY died in 2023, but have not been able to verify that event.



As noted, Marvin SIZEMORE died in 2023 just short of his 101st

Army SGT Luther Prunty, by my account was the eldest former POW when he died at age 102 in 2015.
