In Memory

     The following list was created in the memory of the men and women from Garrett County, Maryland that "gave their all" to their State and Country during World War II.  Soldiers and Sailors of the armed forces are both included in this listing.

     I have created or found "online memorials" for these honored men and women using "Find A Grave".  You will see a blue " Yes " behind their names and by clicking on the " Yes " you will see the online memorial created for them.

     On "many" of the online memorials you will see a small biography for each soldier which includes: parent's names, when and where they enlisted, 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.

There are " 51 " Garrett County Memorials on this website.

( I'm 99% sure all from Frederick County are included )

     If anyone has any information or photos of these 51 men or women please let me know by sending me an email at "russpickde@comcast.net" or by "clicking here" so that I can make a more detailed online memorial for them or add more information about them on their memorial.   This is just a small way of making sure these Maryland soldiers and sailors 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 Maryland "
