World War II Honor List
New York
US Army & US Army Air Force - Dead and Missing
US Navy, US Marine Corps and US Coast Guard - Dead, Missing, POW and Wounded

 

This data has been indexed and rearranged so that it is alphabetical by last name of the deceased.
If you would like to download the excel spreadsheet you can do that here.
Volunteers working throughout New York state and the country have spent many hours indexing these books so that the general public can access this information over the web. The museum would like to thank the volunteers who made this possible:
  Mia Bango, Siena College, New York
  Rick Bennett, Stokesdale, North Carolina
  Dawn Farrar, Malta, NY
  Greta Hamilton, Indiana
  Col. Jack Kennedy (USA Ret.), Elfers, Florida
  Mike Mansir, Ballston Spa, NY
  John McCarty, Waterford, NY
  Bruce Scott, Selkirk, NY
  Sean Sullivan, Queensbury, NY
   
Important limitations of this resource:
  It does not include US Army and US Army Air Force wounded
  It does not include serial numbers for US Navy, Coast Guard or Marine Corps
  It does not include next-of-kin for US Army and US Army Air Force
  It only includes burial information for Army personnel who were buried overseas.
  The Navy casualties represent only those on active duty resulting directly from operational activities against the enemy.
   
   
Tip Some last names with two parts (such as Del Toro) have lost the space between words.
   
This information was compiled from:
  The Army's World War II honor list of dead and missing: state of New York (Washington: War Department, 1946), and,
  The Navy's State summary of war casualties: (New York) (Washington, D.C. United States Government Printing Office, 1946.)
 
Dates of death, units, award information and burial place for the Army was obtained from The American Battle Monuments Commission.
Thank you to Martha Sell and all of the people there.
