BULLET Reburial List of Soldiers From St. Louis Who Died During WWI
A-L

The following list was compiled from special articles and DEATH NOTICES taken from the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH January 1921 to December 1922, of all the soldiers who died in France and were later returned for reburial in St. Louis.

This was accomplished as part of a four year government program that honored requests of the deceased nearest relatives for the body to be returned to American.

This program ceased to accept new requests after March 31, 1922.
