As I was strolling down the list of people who died – WACs in New Guinea + current news — Pacific Paratrooper, I noticed Bill Overmier died at 101. He was in a Japanese POW camp and survival rates in Japanese POW camps tended to be low. It took a while to find him using a popular graving site as it didn’t have his death year, only his birth year.
Here’s the Stripes article about him, posted yesterday – New Mexican World War II veteran, POW camp survivor dies at 101: https://www.stripes.com/veterans/2021-08-20/new-mexico-wwii-veteran-pow-camp-survivor-dies-101-2612408.html. Here’s the Legacy obituary, be warned Legacy will eventually pull down the obituary at some point – https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/abqjournal/name/william-overmier-obituary?pid=199710995.
