In Memory

     The following list was created in the memory of the brave men and women from Hartford County, Connecticut that gave their all for their State and Country during World War II.  Soldiers, Sailors and Merchant Marines, are all included on this listing.

     There are personal "online memorials" for each of these honored men and women that were created for them by using the "Find A Grave" website.   You will see a blue " Yes " behind their names and by clicking on the " Yes " you will see their personal memorial that has been created for them.   On "many" of the online memorials you will see a small biography for each soldier which includes: parent's names, where they lived and where and how they actually died.   If you see one without a bio and you have information on them please email me and I'll update their records.



     Also please note:   The records show these men and women as either enlisting, being originally from, or having strong ties to Hartford County.   Therefore some of these soldiers may not necessarily be from the particular county noted.

     On some of the records you will note that the "Cemetery/Memorial" column shows "unknown".   If you know where any of these men or women are interred please let me know by sending me an "email - (by clicking here)" and I'll insure that the information is noted for their record.


And Remember This:


Whether a soldier or sailor was "Killed In Action", "Missing In Action", "Died of Wounds", or even died in the "Line Of Duty" ....

Whether a soldier or sailor was awarded medals or not ....

They are all " HEROS " in my book and deserve all the recognition they can get !

No matter how they died or what medals they were awarded ....

" They answered their country's call and should be remembered for what they did for us all " !
