Help needed to index World War I veterans

(Continued)



My husband's brother died in 2002 and is buried in a private cemetery, but is listed in this database. It includes the name of the veteran, rank, branch of service, conflict served in, date of birth, date of death, name and address of the cemetery, including the telephone number of the cemetery.

That Web site address is http://gravelocator.cem.va.gov/j2ee/servlet/NGL_v1.

Information pertaining to veterans buried overseas, may be found by searching the Web site of American Battle Monuments Commission at www.abmc.gov/ home.php When I accessed this site I found the World War II Monument in Washington, D.C., listed. You can access this site and search for a veteran by name, or as I did by surname.

My husband's brother had been added by his daughter and included was a picture of him in uniform, where he served and other information.

As time allows I want to spend more time searching this Web site.

Remember to honor your Oklahoma veterans of World War I by submitting their information to the OGS for the compilation of the planned index.

When sending in queries or sharing information write to Relatively Speaking, P.O. Drawer 1058, Norman, OK 73070 or e-mail Darlene Shawn at Djshawn636@aol. com.
