Consequently, I ran a search for the 157th Infantry Regiment, which revealed that 615 members of the Regiment are buried in ABMC cemeteries in North Africa and Europe. I converted that to an Excel worksheet and then compared those names to the list of Battle Deaths for the Regiment I found at the NARA in October.
I have uploaded the Excel worksheet to the Files Section.
Many names are missing from the NARA list, either from error, omission (non-battle deaths, for instance) or because the NARA list does not include MIAs for which a Finding of Death was subsequently issued.
Curiously, the NARA list includes 16 names of soldiers who drowned when the Regiment landed at Sicily on 10 July 1943 but does not include the names of the soldiers drowned in the amphibious landing on the NE coast of Sicily on 16 August 1945. It is also curious that Samuel Eliot Morrison does not refer to the incident of 16 August in "Sicily-Salerno-Anzio", volume nine in his series of U.S. Navy Operations in WW II, which is available from Amazon.
Interestingly, the ABMC database revealed that PFC John W. Wood, who died in Italy in May 1944, is buried at the cemetery in Normandy. It is very puzzling that he was interred there and not in Italy.
As time permits, I shall pull the records for the 179th and 180th Infantry Regiments and convert them to Excel worksheets as well.
