In Memory

     The following list was created in the memory of the brave men and women from Franklin County, Maine 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.

Franklin County had a total of:

" 56 "

Soldiers and Sailors who "Gave Their All" during World War II

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