Each of the fallen soldiers – Henry Johnson, Paul Rider, Brent Hall and Bob McCay - were hard workers, very different from the soldiers that remained to guard the hospital.

A. Each of the fallen soldiers – Henry Johnson, Paul Rider, Brent Hall and Bob McCay - were hard workers
B. Henry Johnson, Paul Rider, Brent Hall and Bob McCay - each of them fallen soldiers – were hard workers
C. The fallen soldiers – Henry Johnson, Paul Rider, Brent Hall and Bob McCay - were all hard workers
D. Hard workers - Henry Johnson, Paul Rider, Brent Hall and Bob McCay - each a fallen soldier
E. Hard workers - Henry Johnson, Paul Rider, Brent Hall and Bob McCay - every one a fallen soldier

can someone please explain the correct choice ( and probably the use of hyphen to get to that choice)

The stuff between hyphen are just serve the purpose of modification.
Choice A Each....were does not agree. Each is singular.
Choice B again each...were does not agree
Choice C is correct Fallen soldiers...were
Choice D seems missing a verb
Choice E seems missing a verb as well

I basically agree with eileen, but I have a different suggestion why B is not correct. The "were" is ok there, but the sentence would have to be "Henry Johnson, Paul Rider, Brent Hall and Bob McCay - each of them a fallen soldier – were hard workers" to be correct.

I was confused why "B" was OK to me. Thanks for clarifying.
