Pilot Officer Milne, Royal Australian Air Force died on a World War II air mission while serving with a U. S. Aircrew on November 26, 1942. He was a member of a multinational flight crew whose remains were discovered in New Guinea in 1989. Since his remains, and those of the United States Army Air Corps Technical Sergeant Joseph E. Paul, were individually unidentifiable, they were buried together in the same casket.

The "Deming Headlight Newspaper" reported on August 02, 1918:

Three Camp Cody Officers Are Drowned
Lieut. Fernand Herbert, instructor in light artillery at Camp Cody, Lieut. Jean Jegou, instructor in grenade work, both members of the French military mission to the United States, were drowned last Friday night when the car in which they were riding was swept down a flooded arroyo twelve miles south of Silver City and dropped over a high bluff. Sgt Ernest Picard, belonging to Motor Truck Co. No. 350, who was driving the car in which the French officers were riding, was also drowned.
Lieutenants Herbert and Jegou had motored to Tyrone on Friday to visit some friends and were returning to Deming when they reached the arroyo. As they attempted to cross the weight of the water swept their car about thirty yards down stream and then carried it over a canyon about fifty feet high. All three occupants of the car were drowned. Picard's body was found close to the spot where the car went over the canyon, but the others were carried to points further south, Jegou's body being recovered at the Spaulding siding, nineteen miles from the scene of the tragedy, while Herbert's body was found at Whitewater creek, five miles south of the place where the accident happened.
As soon as word of the accident was received here on Friday night, a detail of military police, under Col. N. P. Hyatt, hurried to render what aid they could in recovering the bodies. An ambulance was also sent out and members of the headquarters troop also made the trip. Lieutenant Col. J. R. Lee, division quartermaster; Lieutenant Col. J. T. Sayles, division ordnance officer, and Major C. B. Dobbins, adjutant of the 67th brigade, were detailed by division headquarters to proceed to the scene of the accident and investigate it. Capt. Marcel Clavel, the ranking officer of the French detachment at Camp Cody; Major Brown of the British mission, and Lieutenant Col. Hugh H. McGee were also on the scene.
Both the deceased officers were married, Lieutenant Jegou leaving a widow and two children in France, and Lieutenant Herbert being survived by a widow in France. They had each seen three years' service in the thickest of the fighting in Europe and Lieutenant Jegou had also served for a number of years in the French navy. Since coming to Camp Cody both officers had earned the esteem of the American officers and men with whom they were associated in the training of the American troops, and the regret that is felt at their untimely and tragic death is deep and sincere.
Sergeant Picard came to Camp Cody from Worcester, Mass., and had been detailed to act as chauffeur for the French officers on account of his knowledge of the language. He is said to have been a naturalizes American citizen of French-Canadian descent and was the most valued non-coms in his organization.

French hero dies here from wounds
Lieut. Henri Coquelet, French war hero, and a member of the French High Commission in Washington, died at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon in Gerfield Hospital, as the result of wounds received in battle two years ago.
Lieutenant Coquelet was serving with the First Filed Artillery, french Army, at the time he was wounded. Shell shock caused a tumour of the brain, which though not considered serious at first, suddenly became worse about nine months ago.
Following his wounding, he was sent to this country to aid in the instruction of America's new army. He was later attached to the French commission, where he served until taken ill, in the last months of 1918. He was sent to Walter Reed Hospital for treatment, and a short time ago was removed to Garfield Hospital.
Lieutenant Coquelet is survived by his widow, who is widely known in Washington society circles.

German Army
During World War II there were approximately 435,788 prisoners of war held in more than 900 camps in 46 states, plus Alaska, which was not yet a state. The vast majority of these prisoners were from the German military, although there were also approximately 51,455 Italians and 5,435 Japanese held in the United States. Of these men, there is one German prisoner of war, named Anton Hilberath, buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Although his is the only grave there, he is one of at least 830 German prisoners of war who died and were buried in the United States. Of the Italian prisoners of war held in the United States, there are only two buried at Arlington National. Their names are Mario Batista and Arcangelo Prudenza. All three were captured and taken prisoner during the African Campaign in North Africa. They were then shipped across the Atlantic Ocean and held on Marylandís eastern shore. There they were permitted to work on farms, for modest pay, since it was decided that they presented no risk to people in the area and likely would not try to escape.
All three died in captivity in 1946, and were buried in accordance with the Geneva Conventions, which stated that if a prisoner of war or a foreign national died in another country during World War II, they should be buried in the closest national cemetery of that country. So with Arlington National being the closest national cemetery, all three men were buried there.

Grave Wingate

On 24 March 1944, USAAF's Boeing B-25 Mitchell bomber aircraft (of the American 1st Air Commando Group) was on the return flight - from Imphal to Lalaghat - following an assessment of the situations in three Chindit-held bases in Burma which were under the command of British Major General Orde Charles Wingate. The Mitchell B-25 aircraft was being crewed by five American Air Corps personnel - including Technical Sergeant J. W. Hickey - and there were four British passengers on board, including Major General Wingate, his Aide-de-camp, and two British war correspondents. The aircraft crashed into the Burmese jungle-covered hills (which is in the present-day state of Manipur in northeast India). All nine people on board the B-25 Mitchell perished in the accident. The crew and passengers are interred in one grave.

On the 9th September 1944, both engines failed on a C47, flying in bad weather, whilst on a operational mission over central Greece. The aircraft crashed into the side of a mountain near the hamlet of Stevenikon.
The resulting fire made individual identification impossible. As the majority of the victims were Americans, they were all laid to rest in the US National Military Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia.

Son of Joseph A. and Anna L. Volk
of North St., Millbrook, New York, USA
The "Milbrook Round Table" reported on September 29, 1944:

Lieutenant Joseph C. Volk
Once again we find the need to pay respect to another of our local boys who died while fighting for his country. On September 10th, Lieutenant Joseph Volk was killed while participating in a mission over Greece, the telegram informed his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Volk, on Wednesday.
Enlisted in the Army Air Corps in January of 1943, through the Defense Commitee of the Poughkepsie Lodge of Elks, he received his flight training at various flying fields in Texas and was commissioned a second lieutenant on November 3, 1943, at Ellington Field, Texas. Joe was recently sent overseas and arrived at an air base in Italy.
While in high school, Joe was an active participant in sports and was well liked by all his fellow students, simply because he was "one swell guy". Graduating in 1935, Joe was quite ready to face whatever came his way for he possessed the qualities for success - honesty, respect for the rights of others and courage.
Folks will remember him as the lad who, when the present world turmoil closed about Millbrook, donned the uniform of his country and left for training which would enable him to bring peace to our country once more.
Prior to entering the service, Joe was employed by Remington Arms Company, Bridgeport, Connecticut.
