Caskets containing the remains of five POWs who died at Cabanatuan POW Camp on July 3, 1942, are buried at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery after the war.  Since none of the remains could be positively identified, they were buried in a common grave.  One of these POWs was T/5 Kent Hughes who had been a Wisconsin National Guardsman.  He shares his grave with Edward Wills and Raymond Graham who were also members of the 192nd.
