 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Ensign, US Navy Aviator, captured on Chichi Jima Island (in the Bonin Islands Group) when his plane was shot down during World War II. He was executed by beheading by the Japanese about a month after his capture, and parts of his body were removed for serving to Japanese Army officers (cannibalization), as part of their warrior spirit indoctrination (the Japanese had plenty of food available). His remains were buried, and later recovered by American soldiers. Army Major Sueo Matoba, the Japanese officer who ordered his death and dissection, was tried for War Crimes in 1947, executed by hanging, and buried in an unmarked grave on the island of Guam (where the trial was held). Hall was friendly and outgoing, and well liked. His life and death are described in the book, "Flyboys" by James Bradley.
