I stumbled onto this website that lists names by home state where one would be able to find the names of those that were casualties of these wars. I thought it might help some that have been working on their genealogy without having to pay the outrageous price of the websites that claim to have information on your research subject. http://www.archives.gov/research/vietnam-war/casualty-lists/ I would love to know if this helped anyone. :) Please feel free to share if you find someone you know or are researching. I find genealogy to be a very interesting subject. We all like to know where we came from and our family's history. :) Hope this helps someone.

all of my relatives got out but one, my great grandfather, my uncle was in the last war, i dont' pay attention, but it was probably the korean, and every time i brought it up when i first met him he would go into a panic attack, and since i knew them well, i stopped asking questions because panic attacks aren't nice. He broke his back in the army in the war and got shot a couple of times, i guess he was lucky to get out, but i guess only he can see it like that.

I understand that. My partner's father was in Vietnam...he didn't like talking about it either. He suffered from Post Trauma. But the times that he did talk about it...we listened!

Thanks for this website. I knew my grandmother's brother had been killed in the Korean War, but it was neat to go to the website and pull his name up.
