In Memory

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

Laramie County had a total of:

" 110 "

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

( I'm 99.9% sure all from Crook County are included )

Information was used from the following link for the " Army & Air Force "
at National Archives for this report:

Click Here for Archive Report:  " Laramie County, Wyoming "

"Multiple" links at the National Archives
were used for the " Navy, Marines, & Coast Guard " for this report.

     Also please note:   The records show these men and women as either enlisting, being originally from, or having strong ties to Laramie 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.

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 " HERO'S " in my book and deserve all the recognition they can get !!
