Military Medals

Others who have served

Our Area Veterans

The National World War II Memorial will be the first national memorial dedicated to all who served during World War II. The memorial, which will be established by the American Battle Monuments Commission, will honor all military veterans of the war, the citizens on the home front, the nation at large, and the high moral purpose and idealism that motivated the nation's call to arms.

Learn More about the Memorial and how you can help.

 

It is with much thanks to all our contributors that this site is growing so well. Special Thanks to Walter Preston and Darrell Music who have worked to provide this site with great hints, insight, and a whole lot of material. Johnson county researchers are lucky to have such dedicated researchers who are willing to share the history of the past.

Darrell has been very instrumental in helping to filling the memorial with Obits and bios from Newspaper transcription.
