Here Is Your War–The Complete List

Here is the list of military personnel and their street addresses from Ernie Pyle’s <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Here Is Your War</span>, which I’ve just finished reading.  I started with Flying Fortress bombardier Lt. Anthony Coreno, an Alpha Phi Delta Ohio State alum.  Lt. Coreno’s information appears on page 119, which is the point at which it occurred to me to keep track of the full names and street addresses Pyle listed for some of his warrior friends and others.

I went back through and re-read pages 1 through 119 to complete the list.  Now, I’ll have to see about creating a Google map that marks all the addresses found and will have a look at Street View feature to see where these people came from and the condition into which the nation has fallen since (most of) these men and women served in World War II.
