Documents

For years we've been counting on our Government to do the research and let us know if anything surfaces on our missing loved-one. The tax dollars are being spent, but somehow the research isn't getting done. Or, if it is, the families aren't being notified.

Without money from dues, grants, or Daddy Warbucks, we've been to the Archives, put up with their rigid rules designed to discourage the public, and have copied thousands of documents for you to review. We aren't historians or professional researchers, so we miss some of the important stuff and we can't copy everything we see, but there is enough here to keep you busy for months if you choose to read.

A word of caution; some of this is upsetting, offensive, opinionated, wrong, politically incorrect, and even horrifying. We make no effort to edit what we find. Proceed at your own risk.

Information is organized as we found it, by record group in the National Archives.  Search for the record group that interests you or just pick one to get started. Then, click on the any Fldr below. When we have time, notes are made in the Serviceman's record under the field named "Documents".
