If your family member, who served in WW II, is not listed here and you would like to have him or her listed please contact the Orleans County Genweb.

We strive to be as accurate as we can be but errors can and do happen. If you find something incorrect in this listing, please let us know so we can correct the error. Also in many cases we have more info than we have room here. If you would like a copy of the complete write up, CLICK HERE.
