Please click on "Contact Us" above and let us know who you are and how to contact you when we learn more about this Serviceman. If you have revisions or additions to anything you see here, please let us know that, too. Many "Sightings" (click above) of missing men referred to physical descriptions, numbers of men, possibly a unit name, a location, and an approximate date. What made a man memorable to others may have been his accent, home town or state, nickname, tattoo, red hair, etc.  The more we know, the more likely we are to recognize him in documents we find.

If your serviceman was killed in action or missing in action, click on the Loss_Date which will show you the other men who went missing at the same time from the same unit. It's the best tool to get more information about you missing serviceman!
