Harrison A. Talbot was born in Oshkosh, WI on November 24, 1924, the son of Jennie A. Greenwood Talbot. The family moved to Mundelein, IL and later to Rib Lake, WI. They returned to Oshkosh where Harrison graduated from Oshkosh High School in 1942 and attended Oshkosh Teachers College. His mother moved to Detroit where she worked in a war plant. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in December 1942 and completed boot camp training at San Diego, CA and went on to Camp Pendleton, CA. He shipped out to the Pacific in September 1943 and was assigned to the Headquarters Company, 17th Marine Regiment (Engineers). The 17th marines were formed in January 1943 and assigned to the 1st Marine Division. They were engaged in the Battle of Peleliu from September 15 to November 15, 1944. Harrison was killed in action some time prior to October 1944, probably at Peleliu.
