HONORING VETERANS

.

We are beginning to find a way to honor our deceased veterans who served in some of the most well-known American wars and also those who did not serve during war time. Those veterans who will be included are those buried in Garland County and any county bordering it as well as relatives of Melting Pot Genealogical Society members.

We welcome more entries. If you want to add a friend or relative to the site, please email with any information about the veteran especially which war or conflict he/she served in. If at all possible, let us know in which cemetery, county, and state the person is buried. You may include biographical data, a photograph, tombstone photograph, obituary, military discharge or other information you wish to add. We will also add people who served during other conflicts that are not listed below if you wish to add them.

If someone served between "wars," he/she will be listed in the war preceding his service period.
