In the words of the Poet Archibald MacLeish

"They say, We leave you our deaths: Give them their meaning."

On July 12, 1973, a disastrous fire at NPRC (MPR) destroyed approximately 16-18 million Official Military Personnel Files.

No duplicate copies of the records that were destroyed in the fire were maintained, nor was a microfilm copy ever produced. There were no indexes created prior to the fire.  In addition, millions of documents had been lent to the Department of Veterans Affairs before the fire occurred.  Therefore, a complete listing of the records that were lost is not available. The National Archives

With this said we are doing our best to find what we can on these men from Shawano County.

I personally want to Thank Curtis Druckrey for his dedication to researching and writing his books on Company F's Soldiers and for letting me share his work online. Please be mindful that these are copy written and for personal use only.
