Life & Loss

Unable to find any details about Harold's life or loss. The Register of Commissioned and Warrant Officers of the United States Navy and Marine Corps of 1940 gives his date of death (and that he was a member of the Construction Corps). The Register of Alumni gives no additional information.

The November 1940 issue of Shipmate reports "Harold Vester Broe Madsen, Lt. Comdr. (CC), USN, '25, died in Los Angeles, Calif., 23 June 1940." A comprehensive review of later issues through the 1970s did not uncover any further information.

He was survived by his wife, Emma; he is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
