In the ETO, PFC Marion Barnett served with Company B, 252nd Combat Engineer Battalion. His unit landed on Omaha Beach, Normandy, France on 19 September 1944.  His unit spent most of their time clearing the beaches and cliffs of German mines, a very dangerous and hazardous operation.

He very likely may have been killed in mine clearing operations.

He was interred in Greenlawn Cemetery, Franklin, Indiana.
