WW2 Researcher and Historian

I specialize in locating and interpreting veterans’ military service records, selective service records, and casualty records for Americans who served in World War II. My casualty research services include U.S. service members killed (KIA), missing in action (MIA), or died as prisoner of war (POW), accidental deaths, or any other military service death during World War II. In addition to locating the files, I can analyze and interpret the records for you, finding the story in the files, since military records from the time are not easily understood for the non-expert reader.

Whose records can I help you locate?

As a professional researcher and World War II historian, I can locate service records and piece together the stories of servicemen and women who died in service to the United States, helping you learn their last deeds and other details. In this way, I can help you to honor their memories.

In addition to casualty research, I locate military service records of World War II veterans who served and came home from the war. You do not need to be a relative to request a search.

My services also include researching organizational and unit records for each branch of service, including after action reports (AARs), Naval deck logs, Missing Air Crew Reports (MACRs) and other aircraft-related reports. For a complete list of services, please visit my Services & Rates page.
