Research A Korean War Veteran

Trace the steps of a Korean War veteran

Using daily unit records, rosters, medical records, military service records, and individual flight records among many other resources we can follow individual Korean War veterans through the Korean War to show you where they were and what they did while on their tour of duty. This process is essential to understanding the experiences of individual veterans of the Korean War. Our one of a kind service is especially exciting since the vast majority of Korean War Army service records were lost in the 1973 National Archives fire. Our experience and expertise enables us to reconstruct the service history of your individual Korean War veteran and to give you a glimpse of the experiences that he had during the war. Our military research specialists are on site at the U.S. National Archives and have have access to a variety of records on your veteran and his unit. We can use these records to reconstruct his service history during the Korean conflict-even if his service records were lost in the 1973 fire. Our comprehensive research service is a unique process which is not offered by any other company-not even the National Archives. Contact us to start researching your Korean War veteran today!
