Lucky Bag

From the 1944 Lucky Bag:


Warren was lost on November 10, 1944 when he was struck by debris from the explosion of USS Mount Hood (AE 11) while in Seeadler Harbor, Manus Island, in the South Pacific.

He was apparently stationed aboard USS Young (DD 580), though that ship's history doesn't mention the explosion.

His wife, Nell Margaret, was listed as next of kin.

He is buried in Virginia; his headstone reads "Killed in action Southwest Pacific. Reinterred Feb 6 1949"
