Lowell's Iwo Jima Honor Roll

Shortly after the battle for Iwo Jima news came to Lowell about the personal losses of our young men. Seventy years ago Lowell mourned the loss of the following men killed in action:

  • Pvt Joseph E. Albert, USMCR, 831 Merrimack St., Lowell
  • Pfc Gerard U. Belley, USMCR, 61 Crawford St., Lowell
  • Pvt. Wesley J. Davis, Jr. USMCR of Tyngsboro
  • Corp. Edmond J. Dziegiel, USMCR, 6 Roosevelt Place, Lowell
  • Corp. Edward Espinola, USMCR, 516 Lawrence St., Lowell
  • Pvt Raymond R. Hamilton USMCR 41 Burdette Rd., Dracut
  • Pfc Theodore F. Maguire, USMC, 31 Prospect St., Lowell
  • Corp. Raymond P. Martineau, USMCR of Dracut
  • Seaman 1-C Howard R Patrie, USNR, 179 Hale St., Lowell
  • 1st Lieut. James P. Scondras, 287 Dutton St., Lowell

Over the next month I plan on writing on each hero. We must not forget. It's been seventy years so many of their siblings and friends are gone.
