Six thousand and three hudnred Citadel men served in World War II. (Source: Charleston Evening Post, December 7, 1945, p. 12A.) Two hundred and eighty-two Citadel men gave their lives in World War II. (Source: War Memorial Albums in Citadel Archives & Museum)
About 200 names of those who died can be found in the same issue of the Evening Post cited above. This list is not complete since a number of military people at this time were only listed as missing in action.
