I assume you are referring to the Wall of the Missing at Normandy American Cemetery. It is not a Leopoldville memorial but about 1/3 of the engraved names are from the Leopoldville disaster. pvt. Harmon was assigned to 1st platoon, Co. D, 264th regiment. His body was among those recovered after the sinking. His body is not one of the 76 recovered bodies buried at Normandy American Cemetery. His body must therefore have been returned to the United States after the war and either buried in a local home-town cemetery or a National military cemetery.
