Weber County native Kim Dixon had a goal of finding all the WWII fallen from Weber County, Utah and has written more than 200 stories of these fallen.
 
One of the stories that stands out to her is the story of John W. Lambert, who volunteered for the US Navy at age 17, was captured by the Japanese after the surrender of Wake Island, and was executed as a prisoner of war -- perhaps the first war crime Japan committed against the United States in World War II. https://www.fold3.com/page/653609196/john-william-lambert-on-behalf-of-stories-behind-the-stars
