Warren Countians have served in virtually all of
the major military engagements that the United States has been involved in. Click
on the conflict name above for partial listings as those from Warren County who
served in those conflicts.
Our goal is to include all Warren Countians who served their country in the military
either in peacetime service or during a conflict, whether living or deceased.
Please send information with name, type of service, when served, photos (preferrably
in uniform) etc. to Arne
and I will add them to the Warren County Military Heritage entries.
These publications relating to military service by Warren Countians are available
from the Warren
County Genealogical Society.
If you know of other resources, let me know and I will add them to the list.
