Biographies

     This page is a series of links to biographies about members of the United States Army, National Guard, and State Guards. The U.S. Army includes all units of the U.S. Army including civilian employees, ROTC, Army Reserve and some U.S. Army Air Corps (most Air Corps/Air Force only linked to from USAF page, those who served in ground units or who stayed in Army after Army Air Force separation listed below too). Many USAAF listings previously below are now linked to at USAF page. State Guard  are those State Military Units which were a subset of the National Guard and which were organized for home defense during World War One and shortly before and during World War II.

     The Biographies below have been submitted by service members or family to me by email.  If you have any such stories to submit please email me below.  Some are pages elsewhere on the web I or others have found.  If you see such a page let me know.  Use your Back Key to Return from such a page. Thank you and enjoy.
