Finding info on U.S. veterans
(last updated January 2010)

In response to numerous emails for information about individual U.S. servicemen (I don't have that info), I have rounded up a number of links that should help in such searches.  The more you know about the person you're interested in, the better chance that you or the administrators can find something. Name, rank, serial number, branch of service, unit, dates of service, date of birth, etc. are all very helpful.
