Note: Service people listed above were numbered 1-20. The opposite page has pictures of numbers 1-20. Transcriber is unable to scan and e-mail pictures at this time. Many of the people listed had other info, such as where they enlisted, what units and branch of service they were in, and where they served. Any fields left blank above are because the information was not in the listing. Transcriber is VERY human, and typographical errors are always a possibility. The original source of information should always be checked to confirm the information. Any known typos in the book are transcribed as written. The book has NO page numbers and NO index.
