Honor Guard List (K-N)

page_banner_i3w8MacArthur-2

This list is based largely on data from Bob Marko’s 1991 Gen MacArthur Honor Guard book, including his original sequence numbers (1-1,959).

The men who guarded General MacArthur and his family & staff before the Honor Guard Co. was formed are included in this list as well. On May 4th, 1945, the initial group was Company E, Headquarters & Service Group. On March 6th, 1946, it was officially renamed the Honor Guard Company. It was disbanded in July 1957, after serving Gen Matthew Ridgway, Gen Mark Clark and others following the end of General MacArthur’s military career. The span of the General MacArthur Honor Guard Company was May 5th, 1945 until April 16th, 1951.

When additional Guards are “found,” their names are inserted in alpha order but unnumbered. Blanks and apostrophes have been deleted from names like “St John,” “L’Heureux” and “O’Brien” to facilitate sorting. A date with “(?)” means that the date of death could not be confirmed. A “?” in the Status column means that we were notified of a death but could not establish a date. A “?” in the Date Served column means we know he was a Guard but we could not confirm the dates. We regret any errors.

We’d appreciate any corrections.
