Although the Application for Headstone indicated he was KIA, an additional notation stipulated NB - non battle.

The 300th General Hospital was activated on 15 July 1942, at Camp Forrest, near Tullahoma, Tennessee. It was comprised of 56 commissioned officers, 1 warrant officer, 105 nurses and 500 enlisted men. The enlisted men received two weeks of basic training in topics such as individual defense and protection, dismounted drill, interior guard duty, military courtesy and discipline, equipment, clothing, tent pitching, etc., before they were assigned to specialist schools. In February 1942 an additional thirteen weeks of training was directed. On July 22, 1943 the organization was alerted for overseas movement and on 11 August the personnel were transported from Camp Forrest on 2??½-ton trucks to the Tullahoma railroad station. The train carrying the enlisted personnel arrived at Camp Shanks, Orangeburg, New York on August 13, 1943. Following final preparations for overseas movement, the unit moved to New York Harbor and embarked for North Africa on August 21, 1943 aboard U.S. Army Transport Thomas H. Barry, formerly the passenger liner Oriente. Despite an attack by German U-boats on 02 September, the transport arrived at Bizerte Harbor, Tunisia in the early morning of 04 September 1943 and debarked in the afternoon. Once on land the personnel were transported again via 2??½-ton vehicles to a site between Ferryville and Mateur, Tunisia. There the staff found rows of pyramidal tents with folding cots already in place - while the enlisted men set about erecting pup tents. The site was in a wheat field surrounded by barren land without trees, bushes, or grass; it quickly became known as the Camel Pasture. While temperatures were bearable during the day, nights were unpleasantly cold. On 22 October 1943, the 300th General Hospital was reassigned to the Fifth United States Army which was engaged in the second phase of the Allied campaign in Italy â?????? the capture of Sicily had been the first phase. On 10 November, following the successful landings at Salerno by combat troops, the hospital personnel boarded the US Army hospital ship Shamrock in Bizerte Harbor and anchored off Naples the following morning. The hospital went ashore on 16 November 1943 and remained there until 31 March 1946. (RJCarr: Summarized from the unit history (http://www.med-dept.com/unit-histories/300th-general-hospital/)

General of the Army Douglas MacArthur wrote about the battles for the Philippines, "...had it not held out, Australia would have fallen with incalculable results."

Records of the United States government show that the Japanese military had approximately 27,465 American prisoners of war at various locations during World War II. Only 16,350 American prisoners of war were alive at the end of World War II. Approximately 40% of the Americans who were prisoners of war of the Japanese military during World War II died in the dreadful internment camps provided by the Japanese military, where as, the deaths of American prisoners of war in German internment facilities amounted to approximately 1.1% during World War II.
