Freedom is not free. Sometimes, it comes at a very high cost. 


[Map of Camden]


       While it is true that there are monuments dedicated to some of the men and women who gave of themselves for our country in WWII, I felt that there was a need for far more than currently exists at the time. As of February 2002, I am aware of 3 stone monuments dedicated to various men from Camden who died during the war years while in service. There also exists a tribute on the a wall within City Hall, which unfortunately, is placed so high on the wall and lighted so poorly that no one can really view it or read the names on it. 
       I do not at this time have a complete listing of Camden war dead from World War II, so as of this date, this is a work in progress. I hope to assemble a page of some sort on each man from the City who made the supreme sacrifice for country during the war. Click on links where you find them, and on photos as well for enhanced views and to find out more about each individual.

       If you have information or pictures which you would like to see included on this website, please contact me by e-mail.

HMTS Rohna

        Six men from Camden NJ, Frank Ballerino, Michael Carr,  Michael Yachus, Stephen V. Koscianski, Lewis Riondino, and Joseph H. Johnson died together when the troop transport HMTS Rohna was struck by a German guided glider bomb and sank of the coast of North Africa. In addition,  six other Camden County men, 19 year-old Harry V. Taylor Jr. of Haddonfield, Merle Reagle of Lindenwold,  Walter McKeon of Blackwood, Carl Johanson and Jacob K. Jenkins of Pennsauken, and Elmer F. Day of Merchantville also were lost that day. In total, 1,015 men were lost, but the story was never told to the families or the general public for over 57 years due to wartime censorship.

On December 24, 1944 the SS Leopoldville, carrying over 2000 American soldiers, was torpedoed off the coast of Normandy. 764 Americans lost their lives that night, including two from Camden NJ, PFC Edward E. Benson, and Staff Sergeant Robert F. Miles, who is memorialized on Camden's 8th Ward War Memorial.
