At the Rohna Memorial Dedication at Fort Mitchell National Cemetery, near Seales, Alabama, on May 30, 1996, John Fievet, survivor and president of the Rohna Survivors Memorial Association, remarked to the assemblage, “I am sure that I speak for the many other survivors when I promise that we will continue to search for those who lost loved ones, to let them know the truth.”

This page contains the names of the men who perished in the Rohna disaster. They are presented here to honor and remember them and to imprint them into American history.
This page contains the names of the men, living and dead, known to have survived the Rohna bombing and aftermath. These survivors are presented here to be publicly acknowledged.

At this time less than half of the names of the 120 man USS Pioneer crew have been located for posting and honoring on our web site. With time we are confident we will add to the roster.

Thirty-seven Red Cross workers, along with American troops, boarded a Liberty ship bound for Oran, Algiers in North Africa. Their mission: provide services to troops in the China-Burma-India theater of the war.

This page is for those who are searching for information about a loved one or may have made a connection with one of the names on our casualty list, and are seeking more information.

2020 Reunion

2020 Reunion Has Been Cancelled


Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and with sad hearts, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Rohna reunion.

We believe it is the right course of action to take for the health and safety of our members.

We have already rescheduled the reunion in Salt Lake City, Utah to June 10-13, 2021. Even though the travel and hotel industries have been hit hard by this health crisis, they have guaranteed us the same room rates.

If you are not registered to receive our newsletter, please do so now. We will do our best as determined by current events, to get it out to our membership. Please keep safe and stay healthy during these unprecedented times.

We are looking forward to seeing all of you in June 2021!
