In Memory

1950 - 1957

     The following list is provided in the memory of the Delawarean's that gave their all to their State and Country during the Korean War.

     I'm currently in the process of creating, and/or linking, "online memorials" for these honored men.   You will see a blue "Yes" behind the names of those that I have found and by clicking on the "Yes" you can see the memorial that either I or someone else has created for them.

     These "Online Memorials" are all on "Find A Grave" which allows you to make online memorials to loved ones and others for free.  If you aren't familiar with this site you should check it out!  It's an amazing concept.

     If you know where any of these men are interred, have a picture or more information about them please let me know by sending me an "email - (by clicking here)" so that I can make changes, update a memorial, and/or create an online memorial for them.

This is just a small way of making sure these Delaware soldiers that "Gave Their All"  ARE REMEMBERED!!


Special Thanks To:

  • " Anne Cady "  -  Find A Grave Member
    " For her great help locating burials and record updates for Delaware "
