Adair Countians who died during World War II
All deaths of active duty military personnel which occurred on or after May 27, 1941 (the day President Roosevelt declared that "an unlimited national emergency confronts this country") through early 1946 are considered war related, regardless of where or how death occurred. The latter date was extended a number of years for those stationed in Occupied Japan and Occupied Germany.
Sadly, the names of seven Adair Countians who died during World War II do not appear on the Adair County memorial marker at the entrance of the fairgrounds. They are:
Acree, Frank Ross, Sgt Son of Fred and Jennie Ross Acree; native of Glens Fork. Inducted from Ann Arbor, Washtenaw Co., MI. Killed in action on December 27, 1942, in New Guinea. Remains repatriated 1949; burial in the Mill Springs National Cemetery, Nancy, KY. Sgt. Acree was the first Adair Countian killed in action.
Adamson, Kenneth, Pfc Native of Adair Co.; son of Dave H. and Luella Cravens Adamson. Inducted June 1942 from Dayton, Sheridan Co., WY. Killed in action on October 17, 1944 on Peleliu Island. Burial Manila American Cemetery, Manila, Philippines.
Allen, Earl, Pfc Native of Adair Co.; son of Mrs. Bessie Dry Allen. Inducted November, 1942. Died May 7, 1944, of non-battle causes; burial Honolulu Memorial, Honolulu, Hawaii.
Austin, Garnett Charles, S1c (Seaman 1st Class) Native of Adair Co; son of Mrs. Letha Rubarts Austin and grandson of Mr. and Mrs. C.R. Rubarts. Induction date unknown. His grandparents received a telegram on May 30, 1943, stating he was missing in action. The April 3, 1946 edition of the Adair County News (Pellyton newsletter) stated "his ship was sunk by the Japs." One source gives May 23, 1943, as the date the ship was attacked. The Tablets of the Missing at Honolulu Memorial, Honolulu, gives his death day as May 25, 1944; that almost assuredly was the date on which he was declared legally dead by the military (usually one year and one day after the service man or woman was reported missing in action.)
Badger, Dallas Lillard, Pfc (Memorial Monument erroneously inscribed "Badge, R. Dallas") Native of West Virginia; son of Cicero B. and Callie Price Badger. Inducted August 1941 from Knifley, Adair Co. Killed in action on December 7, 1944 in the Philippine Islands when shot by a sniper.

Another source states the attack occurred on May 23, 1943. The Tablets of the Missing at Honolulu Memorial, Honolulu, gives his death day as May 25, 1944; that most likely was the date on which he was declared legally dead by the military (usually one year and one day after the soldier or sailor was reported missing in action.)
