Research A WWII Veteran

Using morning reports, rosters, after action reports, medal citations, medical records, auxiliary records, military service records, and pilot flight records among many other resources we can research individual WWII veterans- showing you where they were and what they did during WWII. This process is essential to understanding the experiences of individual veterans who served during WWII. Our one of a kind service is especially exciting since the vast majority of WWII 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 veteran and to give you a glimpse of the experiences that he had during WWII. Our military research specialists are on site at U.S. National Archives research centers nationwide. We have the ability to locate WWII military records pertaining to your individual veteran. Our comprehensive research service is a unique process which is not offered by any other company-not even the National Archives. We are physically on-site at National Archives research centers across the U.S. where we conduct your research in person. Contact us to research a WWII veteran today!
