Are you ready to research your family’s Vietnam Veteran’s service? This is where you begin.
Jennifer has spent over a decade studying all military branches for WWI through Vietnam. Through her research and European travels, she understands the complexity and confusion around military research for WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, especially when all the records burned.…..This statement is actually inaccurate and much more exists than what the public realizes.
To help clear up some confusion and answer her most commonly received questions, Jennifer has written several articles to help researchers. Please use the search on our site to look for additional articles. Jennifer has published hundreds of research articles. The research strategies, records, and locations are the same for WWI – Vietnam, even if the article is WWII based.
