80 years ago today - Apr 21, 1940

Captain William Losey is killed by a bomb during the Nazi invasion of Norway, the first U.S. serviceman to die in World War II. A returned LDS missionary, he is a military aide to the U.S. ambassador. Despite his and other American deaths in the Nazi war zone, the United States remains officially neutral until Dec. 1941.
