Birth: 1923
Hamilton County
Ohio, USA
Death: Nov. 5, 1943

World War II Soldier. He served the United States Army Air Corps as a 2nd Lieutenant during the second World War. Armacost was lost at sea in the South Pacific on November 5, 1943. The day before, he and his crew took off in a B-24 Liberator from Dobodura, a territory of New Guinea, on an armed reconnaissance mission over the Bismark Sea. A few hours into the flight, a convoy of Japanese ships tracked them. The American crew radioed in that they had made three direct hits on the convoy and destroyed their target. That was the last known contact the crew made. Armacost and his crew were listed as missing in action but were presumed to have been killed. The son of Arthur Clayton II and Alice Bear Armacost, he was 20 years old and had lived in Cincinnati, Ohio. His body was never recovered and the marker at Spring Grove Cemetery is a cenotaph memorial in honor of him. Another cenotaph at Arlington Cemetery commemorates the entire crew.
