The U.S. Army Specialized Training Program at the State University of Iowa was established in December 1942 to meet wartime demands for junior officers and soldiers with technical skills. The purpose of the program was “to provide the continuous and accelerated flow of high grade technicians and specialists needed by the Army.”

Iowa was among a number of American universities that participated in the program, which closed in early 1944 prior to the Allied forces’ invasion of France. Following the program’s closure, ASTP soldiers were assigned to the Army infantry, where they fought in the European and Pacific Theaters of Operation. The following participated in the U.S. Army Specialized Training Program at the State University of Iowa and lost their lives in the course of service.
