One of Lindenwold's young men, Merl H. Reagle, along with six men from Camden NJ, Frank Ballerino, Michael Carr, Michael Yachus, Stephen V. Koscianski, Lewis Riondino, and Joseph H. Johnson died together when the troop transport HMTS Rohna was struck by a German guided glider bomb and sank of the coast of North Africa. In addition, five other Camden County men, 19 year-old Harry V. Taylor Jr. of Haddonfield, William McKeon of Blackwood, Carl Johanson and Jacob Kessler Jenkins of Pennsauken, and Elmer F. Day of Merchantville also were lost that day. In total, 1,015 men were lost, but the story was never told to the families or the general public for over 57 years due to wartime censorship.
