World War II Memorial Research
World War II memorials and monuments often begin with site and monument planning. It seems reasonable, but if your memorial project doesn’t begin with a complete and accurate list of the men and women you wish to honor, your fundraising could fall short, or worse, you could end up missing some of your hometown heroes.
In fact, some of our clients have come to us with painstakingly-created lists, which were missing nearly 70% of the men who left their homes and jobs, went to serve in the war, and never returned.
Since memorial planners may be unaware that professional military records research is needed – or even available – memorials and monuments around the country are missing names that should be included. Many include names that are misspelled – and even some that are included in error.
