Attu, Aleutian Islands, Alaska
WW-II KIA


 

(Last Updated: 25 March 2014)

There were two cemeteries located on Attu by the end of WWII. The KIA listing below shows those buried at each location. Little Falls Cemetery was located near the foot of Gilbert Ridge, to the north and west of the old Navy Base (Navy Town), while the Holtz Bay Cemetery was located near Holtz Bay, having the Northern Landing Forces KIA buried there. In 1946, the American's remains were removed and buried at Ft. Richardson near Anchorage, AK, or in other locations as designated by their relatives. Since then, the ground on Attu known as "Little Falls Cemetery" has been recaptured by the tundra...with no visible signs of it today. There's no additional information regarding the cemetery at Holtz Bay. Many veterans to date were not aware the Holtz Bay cemetery even existed.

Cemetery, Attu

Floyd Stone of Leitchfield Kentucky provided a copy of the "Memorial Day Exercises" held on the 30th of May, 1946, on the tiny, western-most Aleutian Island of Attu, Alaska, commemorating those killed in action during the battle for Attu and who were buried in either Attu's Little Falls or Holtz Bay cemeteries. The Invocation was given by Chaplain Meaney; the Memorial Day Address by Captain Adair, and the Decoration of Graves was by Chaplain Insko and Chaplain Meaney. The service was followed by a Firing Squad Salute and the playing of Taps. The names of those honored during this ceremony were made available In the November-December issue of Al King's "Periodic Williwaw Letter." We thank Al for making this list available. (e-mail Al)

Rene Thibault is a huge contributor to our web site, having served on Attu during WW-II. I'd like to thank Rene for mailing me a copy of Al's Newsletter, which made this all happen!

Russ Marvin, an Aleutians traveler extraordinaire, provided information relating to the location of Little Falls Cemetery. Our thanks to Russ.

I would also like to thank George Blood, a fellow Shemya-ite, for donating his time and skills to convert Al's printed newsletter text into a format suitable for display on our web site. Some of the printed material was not legible, which means more than likely there may be some mistakes made in the spelling of some names. If you know for sure a name or location is spelled incorrectly, and you do have the correct spelling available, please contact HLSWILLIWAW.COM and we will repair the error(s). Also, if you know of a person who should be included on this list but isn't, let us know and we'll add it.

A listing of the residents of Attu who died and survived their ordeal of WWII has been added to the site. Please visit this link.

  • Vernon Wagner was my uncle - the correct spelling of his last name is "Wegner."  - Tracey Besser, 7/5/2010

  • Arthur LaFleur's home town is also misspelled and should read Escanaba, Michigan. He was re-interred to Gardens of Rest Cemetery in Wells, Michigan in Delta County with the rest of his family.

  • I have bookmarked the Attu page for a while but visit rarely. It was reassuring to see the commemoration of the soldiers killed in action there. That a small but bloody part of the war will not be forgotten, and the valor shown by these men is remembered. In the KIA listing: Cnong, Donald, the correct spelling is Chong, Donald. He was the valet for his colonel and died at his side. Donald's name is on the Chinese-American soldiers killed plaque in Portsmouth Square San Francisco. He was re-interred in San Luis Obispo memorial cemetery after the war. An article was written during the war about the battle and his unit in, I believe, Stars and Stripes. I look forward to following this link.

  • we have been reviewing our relatives for a Family Tree and have touched on your site. I would like to submit a name correction. Under the KIAs, "Patrick McKliger" should read "Patrick McKliget". He was my uncle and I do appreciate the correction. Sincerely, Patrick & Debra McKliget

 

  • I would like to correct the spelling of my cousin Duane's last name. He is listed as Duane Muchison, Buchanan Dam, Texas. The correct spelling is Murchison. I grew up hearing that he was killed in action in WWII, but my father could not remember where Duane was in action. Most of the older generation have passed on, and there are few left who know his story. Diane M. kmurchison1@satx.rr.com

 

  • Thank you so much for honoring my cousin who died in combat on Attu. I would like to correct his entry on the KIA listing.
    Please change "Louis Marchinek" to "Louis J. Marcinek." Once again thank you for keeping their story alive. We should be so lucky to remember and learn from our history. Shawn

  • The name of the town for Milton Rugland should be ROSEAU, Minnesota instead of Roso.  Thank you.  I was born after the war, but I remember my dad talked about Milton and Attu.  My dad was Earl Rugland, and he served in Europe during WWII. Connie Johnson
