Introduction

Welcome to the WWII Registry!

The memory of America's World War II generation is preserved within the physical memorial and through the World War II Registry, a listing of Americans who contributed to the war effort in uniform and on the home front. Names in the Registry are forever linked to the memorial's bronze and granite representations of their sacrifice and achievement.

The WWII Registry combines four distinct databases.

Three are official U.S. Government databases maintained by the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) or the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). These official databases include names of Americans who are:

  Buried in ABMC overseas military cemeteries.

  Memorialized on ABMC Tablets of the Missing.

  Listed on War and Navy Department Killed in Service rosters held by NARA.

The fourth database—the Registry of Remembrances—is an unofficial compilation of public acknowledgements honoring U.S. citizens who helped to win the Second World War.

  The American Battle Monuments Commission makes no attempt to validate the historical accuracy of information submitted for the unofficial Registry of Remembrances, nor do we limit the number of enrollments honoring individuals.

  The Registry of Remembrances is simply your opportunity to offer a public “thank you” to family members, friends, comrades-in-arms, and anyone else whose service inspires you to submit an enrollment in their honor.

  Registry of Remembrances records may be corrected or modified only by those who submitted them.
