Korea War Casualties from Lake County, Indiana


Korean War Memorial - Washington, DC

Looking for Northwest Indiana Relatives from the Korean War?

The local Veterans Affairs Regional Office has a complete listing of Korean War casualties from Lake and Porter counties. The information includes the name, rank, branch of service, and date of casualty. These records are the only official documentation of the casualty since no death certificate, or discharge paper issued when a soldier died in the line of duty.

With this information, a researcher can go to The Times or the Post Tribune to find the obituary or story about the soldier. The Lake County and Porter County public libraries have microfilmed newspapers from this time period in their possession.

Local researchers can go to the local veteran affairs regional office for help in obtaining the information that is need. Those living out of the area may contact our list of local researchers for assistance in locating a relative from this era.

Researchers interested in learning more about military records might also be interested in the book How to Locate Anyone Who is or has been in the Military, by Lt. Col. Richard S Johnson and Debra Johnson Knox.
