Veterans of either World War I or World War II
or other conflicts

Cemetery Page

I would like to start a page of each of these wars with Gillespie County veterans. 
If you have a family member from Gillespie County who was in one of these wars
please email me with their information.

Please include their name and the service they were.  If they were killed in action
please list the country they were in or if at sea.     I think these persons deserve to be honored.  
If any were in the Korean or Viet Nam conflicts I feel they should also be honored .
